An evocative novel set during the Texas revolution from award-winning author James Lee Burke. Son Holland arrived in the Louisiana penal camp determined not to spend the rest of his days suffering in a chain gang - but he didn't imagine for one minute that in order to escape he would need to kill a man. Terrified for his life, he flees the state across the river to Texas, taking with him a beautiful Indian squaw and a fellow prisoner. And as they make their way towards General Houston's infamous Texas Rangers they find themselves in the midst of the final tragic battle for the Alamo. TWO FOR TEXAS has all the lyrical beauty and powerful storytelling of James Lee Burke at his very best.
