There are sketches in the book by Charles Shaw, well-known . Thanks to James Michener for his short (by his standards) biographies of these two men--the Eagle and the Raven.
There are sketches in the book by Charles Shaw, well-known artist of things Texas and one of those sketches captures the essential Sam Houston. While still a young man and living with the Indians and visiting the settlements, Sam insists on dressing in Indian fashion, long blanket, feathers and moccasins. The book presents the Eagle and the Raven in alternating chapters and with a sense they are careening toward a showdown, which comes at the battle of San Jacinto.
The Eagle and the Raven was written by James Michener. It was published by State House Press of Austin Texas in 1990. State House Press was owned in part by a former secretary of Michener. Originally the fourth chapter of Michener's novel Texas, The Eagle and the Raven was deleted, but then published separately at the insistence of Debbie Brothers, Michener's former secretary

Much of Michener's work is novel, with accurate historical background information. Above and beyond this however, The Eagle and the Raven is a study of two men whose similarities almost overpower their differences. This book is not. It is history, and written in an exciting and interesting way. I recommend this book to anyone, whatever their interest. Michener astutely lines up the characteristics and events side by side so the reader can find the overarching pattern. The book is striking when seen for what it was meant to be-a character study of two of the most fascinating men in the 1800s.
