Legends & Lore of the Texas Capitol (Paperback) (Mike Cox)

Legends & Lore of the Texas Capitol (Paperback) (Mike Cox) - image 1 of 1

About this item

From its beginning as one of the most ambitious construction projects west of the Mississippi, the imposing red granite Lone Star statehouse loomed large in Texas lore. The iconic landmark rests on a foundation of election rigging, an unsolved murder, land swaps and pre-dedication blackmail. It bore witness to the first meeting between LBJ and Lady Bird, as well as a bizarre resolution honoring the Boston Strangler. Mike Cox digs up a quarry’s worth of the capitol’s untold history, cataloguing everything from its ghost stories to its public art and collectible tourist kitsch.
