"Frank Madis� docudrama combines the best in original Texana since John Jenkins� Papers of the Texas Revolution with the insights of a J. Frank Dobie. Like Dobie in Coronado�s Children, he discovers the �lost mines and buried treasures� of the Texas past. Madis, however, �brings �em back alive� with magnificent translations of heretofore unpublished original sources from his own collection. The reader meets both the heroes and the �little people,� Tejano and Anglo. [The Taking of Texas] is the most important contribution to Texas history since T. R. Fehrenbach�s Lone Star with the spirit of Larry McMurtry�s Lonesome Dove. . .a five-star must for readers of Texana, scholars, libraries, collectors, and the general public." �Gilbert M. Cuthbertson, Professor, Department of Political Science, Rice University
