review Texas author Dana Fuller Ross

TEXAS The bold new Republic of Texas is fighting for its life Rallying to the cause of liberty the brave pioneers who forged the Oregon Trail are called upon to lead a new wagon train into the fray Leaving their homes in the thriving Oregon Territory they face impossible o. A 35 cent book from the outdoor table at a bookstore A 9 hour bus journey These went very well together The book written in 1980 did cause me to note how times and perspectives have changed Few see Andrew Jackson as a hero for example nowadays The book is unabashedly about the experiences of white settlers No hint of the abolitionist issue appears although that was certainly an American political issue by 1845But read the book for what it does tell you about American history in that period I had never seen the connection between policy in the Oregon Territory and the annexation of the Republic of Texas I hereto admit that Polk Tyler and Taylor were scarcely distinguished in my mind It is certainly interesting to see the discussion of Austin and try to place the locations in a modern context The 49th parallel versus the 54 40 parallel border is something I vaguely knew about but now better understand The characters are reasonably if not outstandingly drawn I tend to think the author a male pseudonym read on Wikipedia was sympathetic to women but obviously could not give them full blown military or political rolesRead the book to get insight into how American history was traditionally taught and into US and Texan history

    Like old friends this series is so easy to slip into Learned a lot about how Texas became a state and all of that and saw many of the characters in the previous book continue to grow Nice books to cleanse the brain after reading books that average about 1000 pages My only real complaint is this Why the harleuin
