Publisher's Description

Sam Houston was one of the most colorful characters in American history. From the time he ran away to join the Cherokee tribe because he didn't want to attend school to the day he freed Texas from Mexican rule and to the end of his life, he was a definite individual. He dressed wildly. As a young schoolteacher, he requested that part of his payment be in bolts of cloth so that he could make beautiful shirts. For many years, he adopted Cherokee regalia. And as a respected Congressman and President, he wore a vest made out of leopard fur-to remind everyone that, like the leopard, he would not change his spots just to do the popular thing. Houston stood firm in his beliefs, and he was often unpopular for them. There are many years in his life where no one has ever been sure just what happened, and Houston steadfastly refused to tell. Now I am Houston brings the life of this legendary statesman, warrior and friend of the Cherokee to life with accurate history and a great story. Sam Houston, enigma and inspiration, will intrigue any child who reads I am Houston, and he might just convince them to stick to their own guns when they face challenges in life.
