"Frontier Forts of Texas" can best be described as a sketchy survey of military -- and consequently political -- activity in Texas. Beginning with the Spanish "fuertes", the reader is taken on a journey that goes forward in time (until the 1900's) and generally flows from east to west as 'Texas' changes hands through a succession of owners.

Given the size of Texas, and the number of wars that at one time or another touched that land, this might seem a daunting task. Moreso as this is a thin book and not a multi-volume series. But Robinson has done a nice job here in sketching out a history that is more than just a dull presentation of dates and cold facts.

Still, I wouldn't suggest purchasing this book as a causal read. The principal, and MAJOR defect of the book stems not from Robinson's writing, which is very good, but from the publishers choice of format. The two columns and the lack of any good images and maps so handicaps this book that I couldn't imagine one would want it unless one was looking for a quick reference.

**Four Stars - "IF" you are looking for a quick reference source for military forts in Texas.

**Three Stars [C-] for most other purposes. The writing is good, but the format is uninspired (dare I say 'dreadful)' with no color 'anything', a wretched two column format, and only one sorry map which shows nothing but the outline of Texas with dots where the forts are or were.

**Something to consider: Three pages have fallen out of the book I borrowed from the library. I'm not especially hard on books and I certainly didn't 'crack' the spine, so if you are planning frequent use of this book, you might want to purchase a new(er) copy with newer glue. Or else plan to purchase a notebook with transparent sleeves so you can house any loose pages.

This magazine-like book describes about three dozen forts "that held a key role in the Indian campaigns." Thus, only major forts are included (The Alamo, Forts Brown, Bliss, McIntosh, Duncan, Belknap, Stockton, Davis, to name just a few). When and where each fort was established, a brief historical account, and the state of the fort today are given in varying degrees of thoroughness. The last chapter is barely a listing of various less important forts. Many of these forts are today state or county parks and offer something of interest for the visitor to see. A handy guide for travelers visiting these sites.
