Vivian Castleberry wrote this after she wrote Daughters of Dallas which had a chapter on Sarah Horton Cockrell. Vivian is a friend of mine. She had access to much primary information from the Cockrell family. This book is first class history of Dallas.

When I first moved to Dallas in the early 1980's, I heard that a woman was responsible for the early growth of the city and this part of the state. Thank goodness I found this book and eventually met the author. As a fan of Vivian Castleberry's other books, this one tops any list of incredibly intriguing historical literature. Vivian assembled a true story about the struggles of an early prairie family, the community and many historical details about the founding and growth of Dallas, including other areas and families of Texas. This incredible story describes the early history of Dallas and how the city's early growth is attributed to Sarah Horton Cockerel, Texas's first millionaire and the first woman to address the Texas legislature. Sarah used her ingenuity to build this early settlement by orchestrating and funding an important bridge to open the West. Dallas is the big city it is today because of Sarah's bravery, courage, entrepreneurship, business know-how and her ability and to manipulate the male business community in a time when women were especially subservient to men. Thanks, Vivian, for spending a few years sorting through Sarah's descendants' family archives and finding Sarah's voice for this incredible work. It is a jewel complied from Sarah's journals and letters. Anyone from anywhere, not just Dallas, will enjoy and savor this remarkable book.

I was first drawn to the book while visiting in the home of one of Sarah's descendents. The author, a former editor of the Dallas Times Herald newspaper, incorporated letters and journal entries into the story of a woman who traveled with her family in 1844 from Virginia to the Texas frontier. In Sarah Horton's letters back to her sister (who had remained in Virginia), the reader learns about the hardships of wagon travel and the family's efforts to establish a home in the prairie that was Dallas 160 years ago.

At 25, Sarah expected to become the family spinster. She meets Alexander Cockrell, a handsome opportunist, who can neither read nor write, and they marry. In a property trade with Dallas founder, John Neely Bryan, Alexander, and ultimately Sarah, come to own a large portion of the village of Dallas. The rest, as they say, is history...Dallas history. Sarah became Dallas' first millionaire, while raising four children.

The book is an enjoyable read, even if one knows nothing of Dallas history or Sarah's descendents.
