"Lone Star Navy" tells the story of a little fleet of wooden warships, bought on credit by an impoverished band of revolutionaries and sent to sea on a single mission: to win Texas's independence from Mexico. In this thoroughly researched and highly entertaining account, Jonathan W. Jordan recounts the improbable story of how the Texas navy helped the short-lived Republic of Texas break away from Mexico and change the course of history in the American West.
