A native of Virginia who as a soldier, statesman and adventurer made his mark on the frontier in Tennessee and the Arkansas Territory and then went on to dominate the early history of Texas. Houston was the adopted son of Chief Ooleteka and a full citizen of the Cherokee Nation - a passionate defender of Indian rights. He served under Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812 and ensured Texas independence in 1836 with his astonishing victory over Santa Anna and the Mexican Army at San Jacinto. He was a dedicated politician who became first elected president of the Republic of Texas and his personal life was a tumultuous as his political and military careers. A fine biography.
