New Book: "Buffalo Bayou: An Echo of Houston's Wilderness Beginnings"
by Louis Aulbach
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Supporters;
I am pleased to
announce the publication of "Buffalo Bayou: An Echo of Houston's
Wilderness Beginnings". This book tells the story of the people and
events along the banks of Buffalo Bayou, Houston's most famous stream. From its headwaters near Katy to the eastern limits of
Houston at the I-610 East bridge, Buffalo Bayou flows about sixty
miles and is witness to the past 200 years of Texas
You will find the names of familiar persons in
the stories of Houston, such as Augustus C. Allen, Benjamin A.
Shepherd, Zerviah Noble, Jack Yates, John T. Brady, Ima Hogg,
William Marsh Rice and many, many others. But, there also are many
individuals who are less well known today, such as Thuse Donnellan,
Hugh Hamilton, Caroline Riley, Richard Allen, D. F. Stuart, Bertha
Bethje, Alexander Sessums, Vidal Lozano, Ida Japhet and many, many
others. Each of them made his or her mark on the city of Houston.
Read about them in the book.
