Texas: a land of sprawling diversity and unparalleled richness; a dazzling chapter in the history of our nation; a place like no other on Earth. Through the remarkable lives of four families, this epic saga spans four centuries and two continents and charts the dramatic formation of several great dynasties from the age of the conquistadors to the present day. A richly compelling novel of a proud people eager to meet the challenge of the land, Texas is James Michener's most magnificent achievement.
"James Michener is something rare and valuable: an honorable craftsman doing honorable work.... He manages to make history vivid and palatable to the reader." (The Boston Globe)
"Vast, sprawling, and eclectic in population and geography, the state has just the sort of larger-than-life history that lends itself to Mr. Michener's taste for multigenerational epics." (The New York Times)
"A sweeping panorama.... [Michener] grapples earnestly with the Texas character in a way that Texas' own writers often don't." (The Washington Post Book World)

Great Story. Terrible Narration (in my opinion)
I love Michener. Read this book several years ago and loved it. Decided to purchase and download for my morning walks and drive to/from work. Couldn’t complete it. Audible would be well served to have these re-narrated and offered. The orator, in my opinion, is simply horrible.
Scott Brick or Stephan Rudniki have done exceptional performances on other books.
Please consider re-recording these Michener books. The current reading is such a dis-service to an exceptional author.
Great Story...but then there was the narration
