Long ago the Republic of Texas fought an epic struggle for freedom from the tyranny of malicious government. During this struggle, the citizen soldiers of the Army of Texas, with determination and improvisation, took the battle for Texas to enemy soil. They were known as the Mier Expedition of 1842. This book is based on the true story of the snake-bitten campaign that was high in courage and spirit, but lacked in dumb luck. The trials and tribulations of the Mier Expedition is proof positive truth is stranger than fiction. Hooray for the spirit of Texas and for anyone who loves freedom! And cheers for the sacrifice of the men of the Mier Expedition and the Splendid Expendables in every generation, the heroes who never get the recognition they deserve!
