"Dunt's firsthand observations of German and other settlements in pre-Revolutionary Texas are extremely valuable, and made more so by his efforts to explain to Germans matters that might seem ordinary and thus literally unremarkable to North Americans." -- James E. Crisp, Professor of History, North Carolina State University, and author of Sleuthing the Alamo: Davy Crockett's Last Stand and Other Mysteries of the Texas Revolution "Vivid reports on everyday life in the first Texas settlements... Texans specifically will find this documentation of the earliest years of development toward the Republic of Texas to be of interest. There is also a large population of German Texans ... no longer conversant in German, who will welcome this publication... Dunt's book will take its place at the very beginning of the chronological list of similar works and will help us to understand the influence his reports on Texas, as well as his advice to the Germans planning to come to the area, really had." -- Meredith McClain, Associate Professor of German Emeritus and founding director of the Southwest Center for German Studies at Texas Tech University and of the TTU Center in Quedlinburg, Germany
