    More Information:

    "The first volume, or the Life proper, is on the basis of Lester's Life of Houston [...], but more moderate in expression and more just to the Texans, with the addition of new matter. The closing chapters on Houston's domestic and religious life are quite interesting. Houston himself appears in the second volume in: State papers, Indian Talks, Letters and Documents, Published Speeches, and Last State Papers as Governor of Texas" (Raines). Also included is an appendix which contains a roster of soldiers who fought at the battle of San Jacinto.
