Describes and lists plantations of Brazoria County and a brief history of each one. 42 plantations are reviewed including their history, the owners, the way of life, and their eventual demise. Some of the plantations are Peach Point, Lowwood, Ellersly, Pleasant Grove, Christopher Bell, Josiah Bell, Waldeck, Eagle Island, Lake Jackson, and many others. The introduction is provided by R. M. Farrar and he says "The author's opinions and observations on slavery and the Negro problem - north and south - are frank and dispassionate and, in my opinion, entitled to thoughtful consideration. The story that follows will be of surpassing interest to those who are interested in the glory and grandeur of the 'Old South' and in the romantic and tragic history of Brazoria County, which for a time, was early Texas, and which the author has woven into a historical narrative that contains much which should be preserved for posterity."
