His political career ruined by a marital scandal, the promising Houston retreated into alcoholism and abandoned civilization to live with the Indians before his fortune became linked to the "liberation" of the state of Texas.

A good copy in slightly worn, chipped dust jacket, gilt lettering on spine bright but upside down, publisher's press release laid in (344 pages, notes, selected bibliography, index).
