Summary
March 1836: the Republic of Texas, just weeks old, is already near collapse. William Barret Travis and his brave defenders of the Alamo in San Antonio have been slaughtered. Hundreds more Texan soldiers have surrendered at Goliad, only to be marched outside the fortress and executed by order of the ruthless Mexican general Santa Anna, a dictator denying Texans their freedom and liberty. General Sam Houston -- a hard-drinking, hot-tempered opportunist -- remains in command of a small band of volunteer colonists, mercenaries, and the newly organized Texas Rangers. They are the last hope for Texas to challenge the relentless advance of Santa Anna's much larger Mexican army -- yet many of them curse Houston, enraged by his decision to retreat across Texas before the advancing enemy. The exhausted, outnumbered rebels will meet their destiny on an empty plain near the Gulf Coast next to the San Jacinto River -- and make a stand that determines the fate of the young nation. "Remember the Alamo!" and "Remember Goliad!" will be the battle cries, and the order of the day will echo Travis's at the Alamo: victory or death. Texas Rising is the official nonfiction companion to History's dramatic series, produced by the same team behind the award-winning ratings blockbuster Hatfields and McCoys. Acclaimed Texas historian Stephen L. Moore's new narrative history tells the full, thrilling story of the Texas Revolution from its humble beginnings to its dramatic conclusion, and reveals the contributions of the fabled Texas Rangers -- both during the revolution and in the frontier Indian wars that followed. - Jacket flap
