The Blood Red Flag
An epic tale of the legendary Texican heroes and their war against violence and injustice amid the culture of early Texas. Read about the fascinating life and times of Jim Bowie, and the real story behind his deadly Bowie knife. The tale begins in 1834, two years before the Siege of the Alamo. You’ll stand along side its 187 defenders–men willing to die to bring their impossible dream to fruition. You’ll be present at the Battle of the Alamo, view the Battle of San Antonio de Bexar, and a dozen other firefights, witness the sad fate of the 342 helpless prisoners at Goliad, and be in the thick of the final battle at San Jacinto when they are all avenged. But it will be a century later before the final chapter of Jim Bowie’s career is written and the final enigma solved. Paperback. 455 pp.

Redcoats and Rebels
The place is Colonial America. The time is April, 1775. The shot heard round the world has been fired by a British Redcoat, and an American Rebel has died. Little known villages like Concord and Lexington have become famous, for it is here that the first blood has been spilled. It is from here that the winds of war are beginning to blow. America is divided into two distinct camps. In one are Englishmen, living in America, who still swear allegiance to England, their Mother Country. In the other, are Americans living in America, who long to shed the bonds of foreign dominance and enjoy self rule. This is a time of turmoil and unrest, a time when patriotism runs rampant, patriotism for two different causes. It is a time that is destined to pit brother against brother, and father against son. It is a time when wrongs are right and rights are wrong. It is time when the soft sounds of liberty, a liberty that many call rebellion, have begun to gather on the wind. It is a time when only partisans live in America. This book is by Seton Home Study School’s in-house Historian Bruce T. Clark. Copyright 2009. 5 x 8 inches. Soft cover. 571 pp.
