Book reading and signing: The Hawkins Ranch in Texas by Margaret Furse

Book reading and signing: The Hawkins Ranch in Texas by Margaret Furse

In 1846, James Boyd Hawkins, his wife, Ariella, and their young children left North Carolina to establish a sugar plantation in Matagorda County in the Texas coastal bend.

In The Hawkins Ranch in Texas: From Plantation Times to the Present, Margaret Lewis Furse, a great-granddaughter of James B. and Ariella Hawkins and an active partner in today's Hawkins Ranch, has mined public records, family archives and her own childhood memories to compose this sweeping portrait of more than 160 years of plantation, ranch and small-town life.
