Summary
"Dolly Webster's narrative provides a voice for what is an unusually silent period and place in the American past. Its discovery will not cause Texas history to be rewritten, nor elevate Mrs. Webster to literary prominence, but it serves to illustrate the human presence that lies behind the abstractions and generalizations of our history books"--from the preface
