Elmer Kelton and Texas Sunrise - A Texas Gem
Elmer Kelton is a Texas gem and Texas Sunrise is a bright, sparkling diamond setting that memorializes the commitment and sacrifices of brave men and women who settled the bad lands of Texas and fought for Texas Independence from Mexico. The battles of San Antonio, San Jacinto and Goliad are vivid. Great men like big Ben Milam, Col. Austin, William Travis Sam Houston and Jim Bowie live again. Because of Elmer Kelton's descriptions through his daring and truly believable characters, we can better understand what was accomplished by these settlers and patriots. Elmer Kelton makes known what a rich legacy we have in Texas.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Elmer does not disappoint you!
A very enjoyable read! The plot of two brothers going West is certainly not new, but as a Texan I find Texas Sunrise a great historical read and the imagery is everything you want it to be! The struggle to survive after the battles creates the hunger and desperation in the reader. A true page flipper!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
