Library JournalEmily Morgan, also known as Emily West, was a real woman of part African American descent who was involved in the Texas war for independence. Legend has it that she played a role in helping Sam Houston capture Mexican president Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto—this graphic novel fleshes out the legend into a heroic love story between Morgan and Erastus “Deaf” Smith. As described in the introduction, the historically detailed background includes some deliberate modifications. Orsak provides lovely and realistic color art. No nudity, but plot content refers substance use, attempted rape, and battlefield liaisons.
