    Excellent Read About Early Texas Immigrants and RanchingWell I suppose I was expecting this book to read of a historical fiction, but it is definitely a biography style writing of Nathan kallison and his descendants It provides a deep rich history of early Jewish settlers in America and leaves the reader wanting to run to the nearest computer to start their own family history search.

    A well written history of the Kallison family, starting with Nathan Kallison who fled Russian attacks on Jews in Ukraine in the late 19th century for a harness shop in Chicago and after his marriage down to San Antonio That shop turned into an iconic San Antonio downtown business of the first part of the 20th century and the author who is a grandson of Nathan Kallison nicely weaves in the history of the city and the state with the history of his family Lots of good stuff here, and very readable, [...]

    This family story begins with Nathan Kallison fleeing persecution in the Ukraine and building a first small harness maker s shop in Chicago Later he and his wife build a thriving family businesses in San Antonio that helped local farms and ranches through the depression, droughts, and the transition to modern farming and agricultural practices Nathan and his sons were remarkable, and the history they lived through is well researched and articulated in this book.

    Nick Kotz s memoir about his grandfather, Nathan Kallison, is a warm tribute to a man who started with nothing and built up a huge ranch and farm supply store in San Antonio The book is exceptionally strongin nesting family history in the context of the history of Texas and the United States from the late nineteenth to mid twentieth century.
