Tales From the San'tone River Bottom: A Cultural History: Origins (Vol. 1)

Historians generally tell only about history. Louise O'Connor has chosen to use a new approach, letting the people themselves tell their own story, in their own words through the new approach of oral history. Using transcriptions of those interviewed, she lets them tell their own tales. In using such an approach, she is giving the world a fifty-yard-line seat to the real drama which cannot be duplicated anywhere else.,

Tales From the San'tone River Bottom: Historic Times (Volume 2)

During the twentieth century, these people of the Texas Coastal Bend were there. They saw, they lived, they processed it, and then they told it to me with their usual clarity. Some of it is sad, some of it is funny, and all is a profound insight into the changes, influences, events and reactions to events experienced by the men, women, and children of the Texas Coastal Bend. ,
