Book Review-The Texicans-Jinx Schwartz

Monday, August 19, 2019

This historical novel reads like fiction but is partially based on the author's family. And what a history it is! Texas really went through many changes--first under Spanish rule--then Mexican and finally the United States.

Births, deaths and the struggle to find their identity in those troubling times. This is the story of how that family lived through it all and still resides in Texas as proud Texans!! The author does tell which of the character's are real and which are fictional at the end of this novel!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

An epic saga of Texas and a family who struggled to build their life there

Thirty years before the showdown at the Alamo.

When a pioneer family immigrates to Spanish Texas in 1806, they soon find themselves inexorably drawn into the bitter conflict between Mexico and Spain. Joining forces with a dashing young Royalist deserter, they join in the battle to successfully free Mexico and Texas from Spanish rule, only to find themselves vilified by North Americans pouring across Texas's unprotected border. Targets of prejudice by virtue of their Mexican citizenship, the family is torn along cultural lines as the man they once trusted, President Santa Ana, propels them toward a deadly showdown.
