Review "...Perry skillfully compresses later events and timelines into a narrative that rollicks along the tracks he lays down throughout the book, filled with interesting anecdotes and insights into the economic and political conflicts that animated each of the historical periods he chronicles…"

"...if you love Texas history and don't know much about the Spindletop oil bonanza, how cotton was king, or why Gov. Hogg inveighed against the bankers and trusts, you'll find such stories digested into bite-size morsels that will surely entertain and inform." --Ed Conroy, The San Antonio Express-News
