Known as a daring pioneer and "The Father of Texas", Stephen F. Austin has nevertheless remained an enigmatic hero. This prize-winning book is the first major biography of Austin in more than seventy years, at last bringing into sharp focus his private life, motives, personality, character, and the skills he employed as a central player in events leading to the Texas Revolution and the establishment of the Lone Star Republic.


"Dr. Gregg Cantrell takes a penetrating look into the life of one of the greatest men in Texas history and reveals to us the man behind the legend, Stephen F. Austin. Dr. Cantrell approaches Stephen F. Austin's life and the effects of his life on two nations with a sharp eye for detail. Richly entertaining from start to finish, Stephen F. Austin, Empresario of Texas gives us a deeper appreciation for our history and a better understanding of a man to whom we owe much, a man who shaped our future." Laura Bush, First Lady "An elegantly researched and reasoned portrait." Paula Mitchell Marks, New York Times Book Review "An engrossing story... A rewarding trip through history, a revealing account of one man's transformation from a businessman into a world-class statesman." Robert Nash, Dallas Morning News "Reads like a novel... A fine book." Margaret Swett Henson, Houston Chronicle "A splendid and long overdue new life of the acknowledged Father of (Anglo-) Texas." T.R. Fehrenbach, San Antonio Express-News
