Terry Jordan explores how German immigrants in the nineteenth century influenced and were influenced by the agricultural life in the areas of Texas where they settled. His findings both support the notion of ethnic distinctiveness and reveal the extent to which German Texans adopted the farming techniques of their Southern Anglo neighbors.
Nineteenth-century German farmers and their emigration to Texas -- Germans in the cotton kingdom : the eastern end of the German belt, 1831-1885 -- Germans on the rim of the desert : the western end of the German belt, 1844-1885 -- Conclusion : the importance of cultural heritage in the agricultural systems of the immigrant groups.
