Noah Smithwick drifted to Texas in 1827 and remained here for the next thirty-four years of his life. His memoir of that time is a fascinating account of the early history of the Lone Star State when life was extremely tough for these early pioneers. He records in brilliant detail his trials and tribulations, conflicts with fellow pioneers, Mexicans and Native Americans, and how he carved out a life for himself in this frontier territory. From the Fall of the Alamo to the Battle of Brushy Creek, Smithwick chronicles some of the most iconic moments in early Texan history.
