ABOUT LAMAR'S FOLLY
Mirabeau Lamar seeks nothing less than a Texas empire that will dominate the North
American continent. Brave exploits at the Battle of San Jacinto bring him rank, power,
and prestige, which by 1838 propel him to the presidency of the young Republic of
Texas and put him in position to achieve his dream. Edward Fontaine, who works for
and idolizes Lamar, vows to help his hero overcome all obstacles, including the substantial
power of Sam Houston. Houston and Lamar are not only political, but personal
enemies, and each man regards the other with contempt.
ABOUT JEFF KERR
Jeffrey Kerr entered Rice University in 1975 wanting to become a writer and historian, but this plan soon gave way to more practical considerations. In 1984, Kerr earned his medical degree from Texas A&M University, and after a residency at Wake Forest University, the newly accredited pediatric neurologist moved back to Texas to establish a successful practice in Austin.
