This early James Lee Burke classic is available again—featuring Son Holland, the great-grandfather of beloved hero Billy Bob Holland, as he flees a Louisiana prison camp with a Native American woman and a fellow prisoner in tow.
Son Holland arrived in the Louisiana penal camp determined not to spend the rest of his days suffering on a chain gang—but he didn’t imagine for one minute that in order to escape he would need to kill a man. Terrified for his life, he flees across the river to Texas, taking with him a beautiful Indian woman and a fellow prisoner. As they make their way towards General Houston’s infamous Texas Rangers, they find themselves caught in the midst of the final tragic battle for the Alamo.
Two for Texas has all the lyrical beauty and powerful storytelling of James Lee Burke at his very best.
