What People are Saying About This

The Manhattan Mercury

". . . an excellent series."

Emma Barringer

"One of the best parts of the book was the war for Texas independence, because the author explained why they were fighting. It was good that the poem Lamar wrote to Henrietta Moffitt is in the book, because it is nice to see how he felt. The book also taught me about why the wars with the Indians and Mexico happened, and the kids of things that happened in battle. The book also helped me know more about Sam Houston and who he was, what he did, and how he did it. I also learned that Mirabeau Lamar had friends and enemies in his life, and about the legend of him taking his wife to an Indian hut and caring for her after an accident. I would recommend this book for fourth graders and above."
—Raguet Elementary School in Nacogdoches, Texas, review published in East Texas Historical Journal
