Many years ago I visited a museum for Native Americans in Maine. There was very little left to show of the amazing tribes that had roamed a continent for centuries, until Europeans arrived to practice a kind of genocide. I was ashamed to be white.

For that reason I have read only a few books about the so-called colonisation of North America. The brutality (both sides) and the broken promises (mostly from the whites) is sickening. So what made me read this book? It offered an unusual perspective:

A truly epic book. You will cry, laugh, get angry, and above all be utterly disappointed that you have finished. A fantastic read.

Read at least once in the 80s / 90s and really enjoyed. Am well ready to re-read all his books.

A historic adventure, set in the wild, lawless republic of Texas in the 1830s

Well researched, well written story of the early days of Texas, not long after the Alamo... E V Thompson is an author you can rely on for bringing to life historical themes, characters and places.
