5A Real Jewel
By Gerald A. Richards
Hurricanes on the Texas Coast have all but destroyed most of the ports of entry which enabled pre-revolutiion settlement of what was to become the Republic of Texas. This volume gives the reader the history of these forgotten ports. After reading the chapter on the Port of Matagorda, I made contact with a real Southern lady who grew up in Matagorda, and this fine lady confirmed the history provided by the author, and added many more details about this critical port of entry for pre-republic Texas. Read this volume, jump in your truck, and visit the sites of these forgotten ports of entry.
