"Frank Madis’ docudrama combines the best in original Texana since John Jenkins’ Papers of the Texas Revolution with the insights of a J. Frank Dobie. Like Dobie in Coronado’s Children, he discovers the ‘lost mines and buried treasures’ of the Texas past. Madis, however, ‘brings ’em back alive’ with magnificent translations of heretofore unpublished original sources from his own collection. The reader meets both the heroes and the ‘little people,’ Tejano and Anglo. [The Taking of Texas] is the most important contribution to Texas history since T. R. Fehrenbach’s Lone Star with the spirit of Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove. . .a five-star must for readers of Texana, scholars, libraries, collectors, and the general public." —Gilbert M. Cuthbertson, Professor, Department of Political Science, Rice University
