Texas by Dana Fuller Ross

TEXAS 1844 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 impossib. 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

Le odds on the wild Texas frontier overrun with dangerous outlaws native tribes and the powerful Mexican Army Among the freedom fighters are veteran commander Lee Blake and his wife Kathy boat builder Harry Canning and the fearless volunteers who would risk their lives as T. This is a good book for readers who enjoy historical fiction It helped refresh my memory of the Mexican American War and events leading to Texas becoming a state It s also a bit of a tribute to Sam Houston and Zachary TaylorThe Wagons West series is like a soap opera set in the old west In addition to bringing real historical personalities to life Houston Taylor Polk Winfield Scott the book also keeps the main fictional characters from Oregon with some having much larger roles than others Lee Cathy Blake To bring excitement to the reader the author introduces a few new characters both good and badWhat I truly liked about this book is how the author brought two boys who were kids in the first two books to maturity in this one Chet Harris started the series as a youth and member of the original wagon train He becomes and remains best friends with Danny Taylor another boy that Whip Holt and other train leaders free from being bound to an angry man who purchased Danny after he was orphaned in what I think was book two At the behest of President Polk Harry Canning is escorted to Texas from Oregon to organize and create a ship building operation for the US Navy in Galveston Chet and Danny make the decision to accompany and help Mr Canning with this endeavor Throughout their time in Texas the author places these two young men in various situations that allow the reader to see their growth and development in character It s a good sub storyline that doesn t disappointThe reason I gave it three stars instead of four is kind of lame After traveling thousands of miles on a wagon train to make Oregon my residence it would be very difficult to persuade me to leave Oregon for Texas I m a native of Texas and lived there for ten years and experienced its climate just not between 1844 and 1847 It s not a bad state but given the choice between Oregon and Texas I would choose Oregon hands down So when Nancy and Melissa decide to stow away and join the expedition to Texas with Harry Canning Chet Danny and a few others I m thinking those girls are crazy But then if they didn t insert themselves into the adventure then the story would lose part of its structureOverall it s an interesting book that keeps the reader engaged There is closure with some of the characters and a hint of what the future may hold for others California is the next book in the series but I think I m due for a rom com
