The study of history is, first and foremost, a study of people. Yet, too often the history books are so intent on providing a chronicle of events that students are unaware of the human drama.

Mrs. Crain has based this carefully researched book on her great-great-grandmother’s memoirs. It is a wonderful picture of family life and the personal price paid by Texans for their independence. Two Glass Buttons is truly authentic Texas; filled with the flora and fauna of Texas, the sounds of Texas speech, and the promise of a vibrant state. This small volume will put Texas young people in touch with life in the nineteenth century in a way that no history textbook ever can. ~ Maridel Fryar, Ph. D.
