Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155622835X, Paperback)

Three people stand out as representative of those willing to enter the conflict that was nineteenth-century Texas: Jane Long, who was in her early twenties when she first entered the province; Sam Houston, a former congressman and ex-governor of Tennessee; and Mirabeau Lamar, a Georgia ex-senator and son of a wealthy plantation owner. In spite of diverse backgrounds, all three became Texas revolutionaries.
Each was misunderstood and sometimes maligned by contemporaries. All three became involved in a rebellious conspiracy against the nation that had a centuries-old claim to Texas. And when peaceful settlement was no longer possible under the leadership of empresario Stephen F. Austin, each had a part in the revolution and changes that followed.
Here is a unique look at the dynamics of the interplay between Spain, Mexico, the United States, and the Republic of Texas governments, heavily illustrated with maps, flags, portraits, and political cartoons. This book tells the story of an indomitable woman, Jane Long, who holds a prominent place in Texas history, and the tragedies, triumphs, and conflicts between fellow conspirators Sam Houston and Mirabeau Lamar.
