Texas Rising: The Epic True Story of the Lone Star Republic and the Rise of the Texas Rangers, 1836-1846 by Stephen L. MooreThe official nonfiction companion to the History Channel dramatic series Texas Rising (produced by the same team that made the record-breaking Hatfields & McCoys): a thrilling new narrative history of the Texas Revolution and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers who patrolled the violent western frontier.
In 1836, if west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West then Texas was hell on earth--a hot bed of conflict. Who would win the war over Texas? Crushed from the outside by Mexican armadas and attacked from within by ferocious Comanche tribes, no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the cruel rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna and his forces. The Texas Rangers, a ragtag crew of men fighting on horseback, were often outnumbered by as many as fifty-to-one. Yet under renowned General Sam Houston they achieved victory against nearly impossible odds, earning a legendary place in American history.
Acclaimed Texas historian Stephen L. Moores Texas Rising, the official companion to the epic History series of the same name, brings to life the violent Texas frontier and the Rangers heroic deeds during the Texas Revolution. Published with the full support and backing of History, Texas Rising is an unforgettable history of this iconic band of fighters.

Numerous others fill out the sprawling cast, including a pair of young rangers Adam Hicks, Dillon Lane seemingly thrown in more for demographic reasons than for than anything else, and a sniveling deserter Jeremy Davies who offers a kind of grim comic relief. Nobody fares particularly well here, due largely to a script credited to exec producer Leslie Greif, Darrell Fetty and George Nihil.
