Publisher's Summary

One of the leaders and founders of Texas, Sam Houston confronted all of the prevailing issues of his day. Adopted into a Native American tribe, he fought for fair treatment of Indians in the halls of Congress. Faced with the dissolution of the Union during the Civil War, he tried to lead Texas away from secession. A frontiersman, soldier, and patriot, Houston's influence can be felt well beyond the borders of the Lone Star State.

Second grade reading

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

when I say second grade reading, the reader reads in a pedantic manner reminescent of sitting in a class room. I think the content might be interesting; but I couldn't stand the audio style.

Who is Sam Houston?

Woodward's biography of Sam Houston is a nice introduction for all ages wanting to learn about Texas and Sam Houston. Becker does a good job in his narration and bringing different voices alive.
