River Oaks is a name that has rung out in Houston, Texas, since its founding in 1923. The neighborhood s uncertain geographical boundaries may be a point of controversy, but the impact River Oaks has had on the city is indisputable. River Oaks has been home to astronauts who have contributed to American space exploration; lawyers who are involved in the interworking of the United States legal system; oil tycoons who have helped Houston grow; and doctors who are responsible for inventing lifesaving medical procedures. The neighborhood is also home to one of the country s most exclusive country clubs, and River Oaks has been served by some of the same schools, churches, stores, and restaurants since its founding. This book explores how River Oaks not only celebrates, grieves, and lives life day-to-day, but also how it changes the world."Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Charles Dain BeckerPublisher: Arcadia Publishing Library EditionsPublished: 11/07/2016ISBN: 9781540201461Pages: 98Weight: 0.79lbsSize: 9.61h x 6.69w x 0.25d
