This unique collection of short biographies of the Lone Star State's most colorful characters includes headliners Father Miguel Muldoon, the Irish-Spanish Catholic priest and diplomat who helped convert Protestants in order to settle Austin, and six-foot-two prostitute and hotelkeeper Sarah Bowman, who fought as bravely as a man among the Rangers and was buried with full military honors. These are just two of the pioneers who helped build the state amidst wars with Seminoles and Mexicans, gold rushes, and cavalry formations. These fourteen vivid accounts of extraordinary lives are like no other history of Texas and will reach a wide audience of readers who love to read about real people.
