Heroes of the Saddle Bags: A History of Christian Denominations in the Republic of Texas
The book is more than a carefully documented history of the foundation and growth of the Christian church in Texas during the days of the Texas Revolution. It is a vital, human interest document, recording the trials and tribulations of the early settlers, of those wearers of the Cloth such as De Vilbiss, Martin Ruter, R.E.B. Baylor, Father Odin and many others who withstood Indian raids, forded streams, held Camp Meetings, fought corruption and finally founded the churches of their faith in this great empire which became the State of Texas.
