Seeing Texas History: Bullock Texas State History Museum


The Bullock Texas State History Museum presents an up-close look at 81 of its artifacts in a full-color coffee-table book, “Seeing Texas History” (University of Texas Press, $40 hardcover). The artifact photographs are arranged chronologically, beginning with an ancient tool made from a rabbit jaw and continuing through cultural and historical items from modern-day Texas. Each picture is accompanied by a short text block. Just a few examples: Davy Crockett’s violin; the U.S. flag with 28 stars; a saddle owned by Pancho Villa; Tom Landry’s trading card from his football playing days; the Civil Rights Act signed by LBJ in 1968; and the Congressional Medal of Honor presented to Roy Benavidez in 1981.
