E-Heart Press, 1979. Edited by Frances E. Abernathy. A book of folk building in Texas, Built in Texas ranges across the state in word and photograph to explore the building of: settlers who tarried on the timbered lands of East Texas and built with the readily available pine logs in the traditions of their fathers; those in the Western Cross Timbers used oak; European migrants into Central Texas stacked rocks into houses in the fashions learned in the Old Country; West Texans of the Pecos, who had neither rocks nor logs to build with, mixed mud and grass, made adobe brick, and built in traditions borrowed from the Mexican-Indian population already settled there. Numerous B/W photos and line drawings throughout the book.
