Summary "In this book are the inspiring and often thrilling stories of men and women who contributed to the destiny of a great state but slipped from the pages of history. The well-known deeds of Houston, Travis, Crockett, and others are set on a foundation of the blood and legacy of thousands of Texans who labored, fought, and died in relative obscurity and who would be astounded to find themselves called heroes today. Texans most certainly remember the Alamo, but few know it was Sidney Sherman who coined that stirring battle cry. The U.S. cavalry is famous for its timely rescues and courageous deeds, but its most effective fighting force was a group of Indians. The contribution of the schoolteacher is still little appreciated today, but it cost Ann Whitney her life to bring education to children on the perilous and untamed Texas frontier.
No eternal flame burns in their memory, no monuments rise to their honor. Most of these heroes died forgotten, but in haunting tales of their simple courage and hard-won victories the story of Texas is told. The author has sought out stories of heroic Texans from the times before the revolution to the present day, and she has told them here in a way that will entertain and inspire you. And when you have met every hero and shared their moments of glory, you too will agree that these unsung heroes of Texas deserve a hymn of their own."
