Book Reviews The Hoggs of Texas: Letters and Memoirs of an Extraordinary Family, 18871906. Edited by Virginia Bernhard. (Denton: Texas State Historical Association, 2013. Pp. 330. Illustrations, map, notes, bibliography, index). The Hoggs of Texas: Letters and Memoirs of an Extraordinary family, 18871906, by Virginia Bernhard, professor emerita of history at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, adds a valuable supplement to her biography of Ima Hogg. In this volume Bernhard has assembled and edited the personal correspondence of almost two decades of letters written by members of the Hogg family. Providing historical context and personal observations to the letters are parts of daughter Ima's memoirs. Beginning in 1887, these family letters cover James S. Hogg's terms as attorney general and governor and continue until his death in 1906. But more importantly, the letters kept the family close, providing bonds of affection, advice, and encouragement. The Hogg family, sometimes referred to as the "first family of Texas," lived at a time when the Old South was giving way to a New South that was industrializing and urbanizing. Such rapid transformation led to economic inequality, especially as railroads and corporations prospered over ordinary farmers and workers. By 1891
