Our next book is Texas State Parks and the CCC: The Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps by Cynthia Brandimarte with Angela Reed. Author Cynthia Brandimarte will join us on Oct. 25. This book tells the story of the Roosevelt-era Civilian Conservation Corps, which built many Texas state parks from Palo Duro Canyon to Lake Corpus Christi.

Many of you have seen the amazing exhibit at The Bullock Texas State History Museum – this book takes you on the journey editor James Bruseth and his team went on to uncover the lost ship and the stories it tells.
