As the author of world history textbooks for children, I am always on the hunt for extraordinary literature that complements my work and helps bring history to life. I have found such a resource with Sam Houston's Republic . . . a captivating and historically accurate portrayal . . .-Linda Lacour Hobar, author of The Mystery of History. Sam Houston's Republic chronicles Texas history in a captivating blend of adventure, politics, Christian faith, romance, and even a splash of humor. The author illuminates the hearts and minds of her characters in a vivid detail that belies a history text . . . A highly recommended read! -Susan B. Weir Hear hoof beats in your classroom or homeschool . . . • Travel with Sam Houston as he outmaneuvers Santa Anna • Journey with Zechariah Morrell as he preaches the gospel and endures hardship • Defend the frontier with Texas Ranger Jack Hays "captivating . . . an amazing piece of work . . . I enjoyed it immensely . . ." -Paul White, 11th grade Lynne Tagawa never found "social studies" interesting in school. After the Lord saved her she began to see that history was His Story.
