Prize-Winning Texas Biography!

Herbert Gambrell won the Collins Award for Best Texas Book of the Year award for Anson Jones: The Last President of Texas.

Anson Jones came to Texas broke, many times a failure. Thereafter his story was the story of Texas – through revolution, the hectic days of the Republic of Texas, and into the American Union. He served as a Texas soldier, congressman, and then the most important diplomat of the Republic. He finally brought his mission to an end as he worked to bring Texas into the United States, making him the last president of Texas.

A fascinating story, told with humor and insight.
