Four New eBooks Added to Las Villas del Norte

Michelle Hinojosa Melencio shared a file with us that contained awesome resources about South Texas and Northeastern Mexico. They all are either non copy righted or available for free on the internet. This file also contains links to great eBooks. It is from her work that I now add four new additions to the eBook index. You can find them on your dashboard under the eBooks tab. All of these were added to the History category. This is the a quick link to them: https://www.lasvillasdelnorte.com/welcome-to-our-members-area/ebook-library/?category=9 or just click "Read Now" link under the image of the book just bellow.

A true Daughter of the Confederacy, the author presents the history of the Texas coastal city of Corpus Christi, from the point of view of white Protestant settlers. She illustrates how the city came to be, and outlines the key figures in the history of the city. It is also an excellent view of the city as it was at the turn of the previous century, up through 1915. The history is replete with humorous stories, and sometimes tragic stories. It shows how the early settlers were affected by marauding Indians and thieving gangs of Mexicans in the early days. She also goes into details of how the city was affected by the Civil War, and describes several of the battles fought there. (Summary from www.amazon.com)
