    Taming the Land: The Lost Postcard Photographs of the Texas High Plains (Clayton Wheat Williams Texas Life Series) by John Miller Morris Jr.
    English | Mar. 6, 2009 | ISBN: 1603440372 | 232 Pages | PDF | 51.54 MB

    A postcard craze gripped the nation from 1905 to 1920, as the rise of outdoor photography coincided with a wave of settlement and prosperity in Texas.

    Hundreds of people took up cameras, and photographers of note chose some of their best work for duplication as photo postcards-sold for a nickel and mailed for a penny to distant friends and relatives. These postcards, which now enjoy another kind of craze in the collecting world, left what author John Miller Morris calls a "significant visual legacy" of the history and social geography of Texas. For more than a decade, Morris has been finding and studying the photographers and methodically gathering their postcards. In Taming the Land , he shares those finds with readers, introducing each photographer and providing interpretive descriptions of the places, people, or events depicted in the photographs. The stories the cards tell-in the images captured and the messages carried-add an exceptional dimension to our understanding of life in rural Texas a century ago. Taming the Land presents postcards from twenty-four counties in the booming Texas Panhandle. This is the first book in a set called Plains of Light, which will collect and document turn-of-the-twentieth-century photo postcards from all over West Texas.[​IMG]
