Linda Barfield, Alamo Couriers Chapter Daughters of the Republic of Texas

“This is the heart wrenching story of a young girl who comes to the Texas frontier with her family. They do not fully realize the extent of the hardships and dangers they will endure. The book tells the history of the Texas revolution in an interesting and personal way through the eyes of the girl who becomes a young woman. While reading, I kept thinking about my own pioneer ancestors.”
