"A page-turner for history buffs. Texas Rising is an absorbing and surprisingly fresh account of common people who performed uncommon feats as volunteers waging an epic struggle against an invading army and as fledgling Texas Rangers on a hostile frontier Stephen L. Moore has combined excellent research skills with perceptive analysis and a compelling narrative to bring to life the people and events of one of the most heroic episodes in American history."
—Thom Hatch, Spur Award-Winning author of The Last Outlaws

 

General Sam Houston

 

"With a wonderful eye for detail and a gift for storytelling, Stephen L. Moore has provided an action-packed ride with the early Texas Rangers through the violent Republic years. In a story that is equal parts horror and heroism, defeat and triumph, Moore has proven yet again that he is one of the best writers working today."
—James M. Scott, author of Target Tokyo

The slaughter at San Jacinto

 

"Moore provides a lively account of the battles of the Texas Revolution against Mexico in the 1830s and subsequent fighting against native tribes residing in the region. Colorful. Fast-moving narrative."—Library Journal

"A well-paced narrative on a very important era of American history . . . Moore's narrative should be read and understood, not in relationship to the dramatic television series, but in its own right as a fact-filled introduction to the men, women and events that created the revolution, the republic and the state of Texas."
