Son Holland arrived in the Louisiana penal camp determined not to spend the rest of his days suffering in a chain gang—but he didn’t imagine for one minute that in order to escape he would need to kill a man. Terrified for his life, he flees the state across the river to Texas, taking with him a beautiful Indian squaw and a fellow prisoner. And as they make their way towards General Houston’s infamous Texas Rangers they find themselves in the midst of the final tragic battle for the Alamo.

Two for Texas has all the lyrical beauty and powerful storytelling of James Lee Burke at his very best.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 12/15/2013

    " A rare foray into Western territory for Burke. I liked it, but I like his Robicheux novels better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikel | 10/20/2013

    " A good book. It's probably most a victim of my lack of interest in this particular time period, but very well written and an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cammie | 9/23/2013

    " James Lee Burke is one of best writers of our times. He is one of the few writers whose books I will purchase in hard cover because I can't wait for the paperback version to come out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 8/28/2013

    " Finely drawn but unlikable characters who having escaped prison flee to Texas where they meet a variety of characters. Well written and gave a sense of US history. "

    " A good westeren by a good story teller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 7/2/2013

    " Very nice western novel set in Texas during wars with Mexico, as a JLB fan of his Robiceaux crime series, this was a nice change and was very well written with some great dialoge exchanges. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 6/17/2013

    " Just a good old fashioned story. A very early James Lee Burke novel. Kind of hard to find a copy but I recomend it to fans of James Lee Burke. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 5/7/2013

    " This was not one of my favorites by Burke but is was interesting reading since we live to close to the Alamo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Thornton | 1/10/2013

    " Having read all of James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux series, I was eager to read something different by the author. I became involved with the story immediately and enjoyed it until the end. "
