Abstract

As the largest European immigrant population in the state of Texas, German- Americans have a rich agricultural history that has been a crucial factor in their delayed assimilation into the rest of American society. This study places a special emphasis on the Texas Hill Country, as it is the area that has most resisted assimilation until the twentieth century. In this study, the historical forces that shaped this region are explored through the relationship of German-Americans to their land and the areas around them.
