"They were the Texas volunteers. On an open prairie in front of a mission called the Alamo, Santa Anna' soldiers won a brutal victory-in a battle that became a call to arms around the country. Brave men answered from across the United States: New Englanders and Virginians, Kentuckians and Cajuns, all came to the brawling, sprawling province called Texas to sign a Declaration of Independence on Sam Houston's birthday. Now four men from Alabama, new recruits in John Shakleford's Red Rovers, have joined the fight: Pierce Hammond, the cowardly son of a wealthy plantation owner; Mingo Green, a runaway slave yearning to be free; Boone Tasker, too poor to marry the woman he loves; and Gabe Cochran, a young widower with nothing left to live for. Fleeing their pasts, they are bound by a noble cause. And they will back up their words with their honor, their courage, and their lives."--BOOK COVER.
