Jones has provided a list of books of local interest that are available
online for free. These books are available in online digitized format
through The Portal to Texas History website. For online reading, I like
their version better. To page forward in the book, you just click on the
right side of the page. To page backward, click on the left side of the
page. It is more like reading an actual book rather than scrolling up and
down. You can also choose a specific image number from the drop down box if
you want to skip ahead by a large number of pages. [The image number will
not exactly match the page numbers because of blank or unnumbered pages in
the book.] From the main page for the book, you can search for specific text
in the book. Look for the "search inside" box on the right side of the page.
Here are links to some books about this area.
