    Lone Star Nation is the gripping story of Texas' precarious journey to statehood, from its early colonization in the 1820s to the shocking massacres of Texas loyalists at the Alamo and Goliad by the Mexican army, from its rough-and-tumble years as a land overrun by the Comanches to its day of liberation as an upstart republic.

    Story
    Would you listen to Lone Star Nation again? Why?

    Yes. As a new Texan resident who's raising children in the Lonestar State, this book gives me a thorough understanding of our new home's heritage.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lone Star Nation?

    I enjoyed getting to know the lives of the Texas "founders" before they came to Texas.


    What does Don Leslie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As a daily 2-hour commuter, audio books make it possible for me to be a "reader" again. Carving out additional time would be nearly impossible with work and family obligations.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I looked forward to every drive so I could hear what happens next.
