Governor of two states, president of an independent republic, and for thirteen years a United States senator, Sam Houston forged a life of great adventure, frequent controversy, and lasting achievement. This indispensable text follows Houston from his early days as a barely-educated clerk in Tennessee to his rise as an unmatched politician who assured the success of the Texas revolution. Within the historical context of the emerging West, Houstonrsquo;s story is not only one of courage and fortitude, but also aids in understanding of the possibilities and limitations of leadership in a Democratic society. Sam Houston and the American Southwest, 3/e is a great way to illuminate the issues of the period through this compelling figure. The new Study and Discussion Questions extend the text, and can be used to facilitate discussions in the classroom or student study groups. Texas, Texas History, Southwest, American West, John Quincy Adams, Texas War of Independence, Alamo, Texas Republic, Governor, Mexican War, Indian uprising. Readers interested in learning about Sam Houston and the era in which he lived.
