Synopsis

The official nonfiction companion to History’s dramatic series Texas Rising® (produced by the same team who made the award-winning ratings blockbuster Hatfields & McCoys), acclaimed Texas historian Stephen L. Moore’s definitive new narrative account tells the full, thrilling story of the Texas Republic, from revolution to independence and its years as a sovereign nation. Moore vividly recounts the journey of General Sam Houston and his small but determined band of volunteers who avenged their defeat at the Battle of the Alamo in one of the most memorable military campaigns in American history. Texas Rising® also sheds new light on the contributions of the fabled Texas Rangers, both during the revolution and in the bloody Indian wars fought for control of the young republic’s vast Western frontier. A main selection of the History Book Club, Moore’s “fast-moving narrative” (Library Journal) is a riveting and essential addition to any library of the American West.
