Yellow Rose of Texas: The Myth of Emily Morganby Douglas Brode
Yellow Rose of Texas: The Myth of Emily Morgan tells the fact based story of the African-American woman who inspired the world famous folk song. In this graphic novel the adventures of Emily Morgan reveal the Texas war for independence through the eyes of a black woman who survived the Alamo and played an important part in winning the war. While the story of Texas is told with attention to historical detail, the story of Emily is elevated to a romantic myth.
