The Other Rose of Texas, Each Hardbound Book

Before Emily (West) Morgan was called “The Yellow Rose of Texas,” did Alamo hero Jim Bowie’s beautiful and passionate young wife, Ursula, earn the title “The Other Rose of Texas” by inspiring him to stand at the Alamo and spur the birth of the Texas Republic? With devotion to published facts, our fictional story provides solutions to this and other major mysteries about Bowie’s short life:  When he moved to Texas in 1830, why did Jim Bowie stop earning his living as a slave trader, and, in 1836, why did he alone decide to make a stand at the Alamo, despite orders from General Sam Houston to destroy it?  Are the answers to these questions related? Beginning when Jim Bowie was fifteen years old, The Other Rose of Texas tells of his life and times in three parts.  Part I is devoted to Bowie’s life from 1812 through 1829, before he came to Texas.  Part II is dedicated to Bowie’s life in Texas from 1830 through 1835, prior to the Texas Revolution.  Part III tells of Bowie, Crockett, Travis, Bonham and the other defenders during the second siege and battle of the Alamo, in 1836.  A final section gives the published facts that support each chapter.
