About The Book
"General Lamar and Mrs. Juan N. Seguin, wife of the Mayor, opened the ball with a waltz. Mrs. Seguin was so fat that the General had great difficulty in getting a firm hold on her waist, and they cut such a figure that we were forced to smile. The General was a poet, a polite and brave gentleman and first rate conversationalist but he did not dance well. 

At the ball, Jack Hays, Mike Chevalier, and John Howard (Texas Rangers) had but one dress coat between them, and they agreed to use the coat and dance in turn. The two not dancing would stand at the hall door watching the happy one who was enjoying his turn and they reminded him when it was time for him to step out of that coat. Great fun was it watching them and listening to their wit and mischief as they made faces and shook their fists at the dancing one."

So said Mary Maverick in her memoir. She was a straight-forward writer and gave it a straight-forward title: The Memoirs of Mary A. Maverick.

In case you didn't know, Mary was the wife of Samuel Maverick, the man who refused to brand his cattle, and thereby branded future independent thinkers with his name.

Mary was the first American woman to set up house in San Antonio. She witnessed the Council House fight, the Comanche Invasion of 1840, and knew most of the famous Texans of her day.

Her memoir is a grand narrative of life in Texas from 1838 through the Civil War.
