Our next selection for the 2014 year is Dr. Jeffery Kerr’s Seat of Empire: The Embattled Birth of Austin, Texas.
The founding of Austin sparked one of the Republic’s first great political battles, pitting against each other two Texas titans: Mirabeau B. Lamar, who in less than a year had risen to vice president from army private, and Sam Houston, the hero of San Jacinto and a man both loved and hated throughout the republic.
Texas Tech Press has been so kind to us, and we have 10 free copies of this beautiful book to give away! Comment below, “I want a free copy” and send your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive it! Our chat with Dr. Kerr will be in early November.
