In 400-plus pages, author Dan M. Worrall shines a light on an underappreciated aspect of local history: those rural, frontier communities that settled the areas around Houston. From European settlement in Piney Point, to German immigrants heading west, Texian families fleeing east from Santa Anna and emancipated African Americans flocking to Freedmen’s Town, geologist and historian Worrall will discuss his research into the importance of the San Felipe Trail, the route that connected Stephen F. Austin’s settlement to the Buffalo Bayou community that would become Houston, and how it shaped his book, Pleasant Bend: Upper Buffalo Bayou and the San Felipe Trail in the Nineteenth Century.
