This biography of Sam Houston goes beyond the romantic frontier life of the "buckskin hero from Tennessee" to examine seriously his role as an American statesman.

"Rarely does a book appear concerning a period so remote that should correct so much current error."
—Marquis James, New York Times

"Finally, let it be emphasized that Sam Houston—the national statesman, the skilled politician, the ever-so-human and many-sided man—walks and talks, man-like, in this biography."
—Holman Hamilton, American Historical Review
