"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 Coronados 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 Madis, however, brings em back alive with magnificent translations of heretofore unpublished original sources from his own collection.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. Fehrenbachs Lone Star with the spirit of Larry McMurtrys 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
