On side one, Texas Jack, a native jackrabbit, teaches the reader about significant Lone Star characters, historical events, and geography. In this illustrated volume, you’ll meet Davy Crockett, Ponce de Leon, Sam Houston, and other legendary characters. The rhymes run from A to Z, and Texas Jack offers commentary about each entry. For example, “A” is for Alamo, where brave men fought and died . . . to win Texas’s independence. Texas Jack says “he never seen such a fierce battle in all his life.”
On side two Texas Jack returns to tell the story of the Alamo and the brave men who fought and died at the most famous battle in Texas history. In this tale you’ll meet Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, Colonel William Travis, and the Mexican general Santa Anna.
Texas Jack vividly describes the course of the battle, and Texans and non-Texans alike will be enchanted by this historical account of the birth of the Lone Star State.
