Jan Jones has provided a list of books of local interest that are available online for free.  These books are available in online digitized format through The Portal to Texas History website. For online reading, I like their version better. To page forward in the book, you just click on the right side of the page. To page backward, click on the left side of the page. It is more like reading an actual book rather than scrolling up and down. You can also choose a specific image number from the drop down box if you want to skip ahead by a large number of pages. [The image number will not exactly match the page numbers because of blank or unnumbered pages in the book.] From the main page for the book, you can search for specific text in the book. Look for the "search inside" box on the right side of the page. Here are links to some books about this area.
