History: Sam Houston
Join us as we read a biography of Sam Houston – The Raven by Marquis James. Houston has been called the true ‘Father of Texas.’ According to John Jenkins, the author ‘has managed to catch the spirit of this romantic figure without succumbing to the temptation to romanticize the facts, for the bare facts are romantic enough.’ Henry Steele Commager says, ‘This is the stuff of which legend is made – in a sense if he had not existed we should have had to create him.’
The book is available via the registration form for $24. Class will not meet April 12.
