Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-- This biography is loaded with facts but at times misses the mark. Undocumented dialogue is included throughout, so the book often reads like a novel while it doles out limited information about Santa Anna and his country. No mention is made of his use of drugs or the effect it had on the outcome of the Texas Revolution. There is allusion to his attitude toward women but here again, the more interesting facts are omitted. Maps intended to show the areas of the world Santa Anna ruled over or was exiled to are included, but they're too sketchy to offer readers a clear picture. What could have been an informative look at this colorful personality is just another book that may be used for reports but not read for pleasure. --Kenneth E. Kowen, Atascocita Middle School Li brary, Humble, TX
