When I moved to Seattle – oh, so many years ago…I made an effort to bone up on the region’s history. Which was great…because Seattle was founded by a bunch of shysters, hooligans, and thieves. Good reading.
I need to do the same for my (somewhat) new home town of Dallas. But I want to read the unadulterated, “scary” history — the one not written by PR folks and people promoting things – books written by people who appreciate the honest, somewhat “scary” truth behind our nation’s history.
The above book doesn’t really qualify — so off to the RID pile it goes.
Any suggestions from Dallas residents about historical knowledge are appreciated.
