More About This Book

Overview

In 1816, Mordecai Lewis, a veteran of Andrew Jackson's Indian campaigns and battles against the British, moves his family into the western Tennessee canebrakes. But Mordecai, a born wanderer, is not satisfied with farming, and with his sons Michael and Andrew and some other backwoodsmen, he leads a foray into Spanish-held Texas to hunt wild horses and return the mustang herd to sell in Tennessee.

Crossing the Sabine River, Mordecai's party encounters a Spanish patrol determined to repel all American invaders. After a bloody skirmish leaves their father dead, Michael and Andrew find their way back to their Tennessee farm.

Five years later, after the Spanish government in Mexico City has agreed to permit 300 American families to settle in Texas, the Lewis brothers have their opportunity to re-enter Texas. They ride to the frontier town of Natchitoches, Louisiana, where Michael falls in love with Marie Villaret, daughter of a wealthy French landowner, then cross the Sabine to find Stephen F. Austin, a Missouri entrepreneur in charge of the new American colony.

But the Lewises are considered interlopers and horse thieves and are dogged by a patrol led by the same ruthless Spanish offer who killed their father five years before

Sons of Texas is the first volume in a trilogy that follows the lives and adventures of the Lewis family through the era of the Alamo and Texas Independence under Sam Houston.

    Good book

    I'm currently reading this book. It's a pretty good book with a pretty dark outlook. The section titled 'From the Publisher' is wrong in stating that Michael and Andrew travel back to Tennessee after going on a trip to Texas with their father. Michael is the only brother that goes with his father to Texas the first time.

    What a start

    This Book is a great start with the story of Early Texas and the problems faced on both sides (spanish and american). Kelton does a good job of storytelling and at times I found myself ridding next to the charecters with the same jitters they had. I would reccomend to all Western Readers.
