Unforgettable Texans boasts the biographies of more than two dozen fascinating figures from the Lone Star past, well-known if not famous during their lifetimes but long since forgotten. People like the Waco businessman who wrote in secret the longest English language novel; the Klansman Texans elected to the U.S. Senate; the actress that blossomed into a Civil War sex symbol; the husband-and-wife trick-shot act; the admiral who foresaw the attack on Pearl Harbor; the first-ever gringo matador, the “colonel behind the curtain” who put Woodrow Wilson in the White House; the fire-eating secessionist that gave everybody hell on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line, the early Texan reviled as the “least deserving of mortals” and the World War I spy turned matinee idol.
Those are just ten of the unusual and entertaining stories waiting for you in the pages of Unforgettable Texans. And the rare vintage photos that make made my earlier books genuine collector’s items are there too in each and every chapter.
You can buy Unforgettable Texans on-line and at most bookstores, but this website is the one and only place where you can purchase a copy personally autographed by the author.
