Houstonian Marks Hinton reports that he read in the last "Monthly" about the "Portal to Texas History Adopt a Book Digitally" program. He adopted S.O. Young's Thumb-Nail about Houston. He says it cost him only $40. So, the "Portal" folks will digitally scan the volume and from then on it'll be available on line to EVERYBODY without cost. Congratulations, Marks!
See review by none other than E.W. Winkler in the TSHA's Quarterly at http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/publications/journals/shq/online/v016/n2/review_25.html
And Congratulations to the Portal for the service. See the progam at http://texashistory.unt.edu/young/educators/books/available.shtml
PS: Marks' new book on Houston streets is nearing publication.
