"In the grand tradition of Rosenfield and Patton's Texas History Movies and the wonderful graphic novels of Jack Jackson, we now have Mike Kearby and Mack White's marvelous Texas Tales illustrated. Clear writing, great art, and solid history make for a winning combination that will delight and educate readers both young and old."--Paul Andrew Hutton, University of New Mexico

"Mike Kearby and Mack White's Texas Tales is more than just a well-illustrated graphic novel of the Texas Revolution. Their personal approach to reliving the Alamo, Goliad and San Jacinto through the eyes of both Texians and Tejanos vividly illustrates the drama facing frontier pioneers caught in the independence movement that created the Lone Star State. Texas Tales is a historically accurate and refreshing approach to educating and entertaining readers of all ages on the Texas Revolution." --Stephen L. Moore, author of Eighteen Minutes: The Battle of San Jacinto and the Texas Independence Campaign
