According to Jenkins, this book is the best account of the abortive Texas Revolution of 1811-1813, the Gutierrez-Magee Expedition, and the Green Flag Republic. It is also one of the best accounts in English of the decline of Spanish rule in Texas. Dr. Garrett researched the book in archives in Washington, Mexico City, Texas, California, and elsewhere.
