Synopsis

Charles Chupp serves up a fresh new perspective on conventional Texas history in this book that is nothing like your old history book. Poking fun at historical information by telling tales and gently restructuring the truth, Chupp discusses events such as the discovery of Texas in 1521 as well as the origin of the De Leon Watermelon Festival. The Nth Reader provides a humorous account of the stories the historians skipped and tells the tales about what led to statehood and beyond.
