Jacob Jennings- A Novel of the Texas Fronntier

(1 customer review)


Jacob Jennings was born during a time that was as turbulent as any in American history. 

Mexico claimed Texas, but the American settlers who’d recently flooded in were more independent, and when the dictator Santa Anna set aside the Constitution of 1824, he launched a series of changes he had not foreseen. 

From revolution to Republic, from fighting Mexican soldiers to Comanche warriors, Jacob Jennings was there. 

With his partner Jean-Louis Lafitte and their new wives and children, Jake worked when he could, fought when necessary, and in the process began a career that would make him one of the most well-known men on the Texas frontier!

  1. Janalyn Prude

    This story is told in the first person and in the language of the day. Jacob loses his parents to a tornado in initially goes to live with one uncle, but then have to go with another one that uncle is doing bad financially. The beginning of the story was a little slow, but once it gets started it really flows and I didn’t want to put it down after that. If you love westerns you’ll love this book. Although it is an autobiography it will definitely Appeal to those who like westerns. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can’t believe The great books I get off of Audible unleashed.
