A novel about Sam Houston as president of the sovereign republic of Texas, who feared annexation by the United States and struggled with the help of Britain and France to keep Texas independent and maintain two great republics on the continent of north America. It is one of the great Ifs of history, and history was within an ace of going the other way.
