    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.

    Overall

    Insightful veiws. Extremely well read. Author doesn't hide anything. Exposes character flaws as well as integrity in some of the most well known figures in American history. Some of the language could have been worded better but over all one of the best books I've read/heard. If only they would have had text books like this one I would have done better in Texas History class. Explains much on the Texas Revolution and the events spawning it. You don't have to be a Texan to enjoy this one!

    Captain Kidd has gone down in history as America's most ruthless buccaneer. However, Captain William Kidd was no career cut-throat; he was a tough, successful New York sea captain who was hired to chase pirates. Across the oceans of the world, the pirate hunter, Kidd, pursued the pirate, Culliford. One man would hang in the harbor; the other would walk away with the treasure. The Pirate Hunter is both a masterpiece of historical detective work and a page-turner.

    Karen says: "Aaaargh Matey, Listen to this tale!"

    Overall

    Excellent work. Well read and easy to follow. A must for maritime history buffs. The book captures the political, religious, legal and general atmosphere of the late 17th and early 18th century. The book captures the lifestyle's of seafaring merchants, sailors and pirates as well as the problems captians faced. It gives the listener a better insight into the life of a very well known figure in world history of which nobody knows much about. Fact based, well studied and to the point.
