Book - 1994
Rate this:
Crook's accomplished second novel, a sweeping saga of the Texas Revolution, tells the story of two families - one Tejano Mexican, one Anglo - whose fates become intertwined in the midst of the bloody conflict. Crook retraces the movement of General Santa Anna's Mexican Army in 1836 as it sweeps north to quash the Texas Rebellion, led by Sam Houston. Among Houston's ragtag militia are Dr. Hugh Kenner and his two sons. As the rebel forces make a desperate stand at Goliad, the Kenners and Adelaido and Crucita Pecheco find they have much to teach each other about loyalty and betrayal, sin and retribution.
