Early Texas settlers had to contend with a rough environment, predatory animals, lack of medical care, drought, mud, horse and cattle thieves and the uncertainties of the political situation with Mexico.  And yet, people flocked to Tejas to claim their league and labor of land under the Empresario program administered by Stephen F. Austin.  Stop by and visit with historical interpreter Dennis Jones for a lesson in frontier survival and the adaptations needed to thrive on the rich Gulf Coastal prairies.
