Sinopsis:

An epic that spans a crucial period of American westward expansion, Not Between Brothers is the bloody and gripping tale of the birth of the Lone Star State. Comprising a large cast of characters that includes memorable historical figures such as Stephen Austin and Sam Houston, the novel unfolds through the eyes and experience of Remy Fuqua, an orphan whose understanding of his fellow man is almost as great as his predilection for battle and his fierce national pride. When he marries a well-born Tejana, Beatriz Amarante de la Cruz, Fuqua is tempted to abandon the world he comes from until a tragic loss catapults him straight to the front lines in the battle for Texan independence-the landmark battle of San Jacinto.

Not Between Brothers is also the story of the fearless Comanche warrior Kills White Bear, whose distrust of the white man turns to enmity when a virulent smallpox plague brought by white traders wipes out his family and decimates his people. His vendetta eventually and inexorably makes Remy his greatest enemy. As the two men stalk each other across the Texas prairie, their struggle pits nation against nation, husband against wife and, unforgettably, brother against brother.

Product Description:

Orphaned at an early age and cheated out of his rightful inheritance, a young man seeks his fortune in a Texas settlement. He eventually courts and marries the daughter of a wealthy Mexican rancher, joining their powerful family despite his being an anglo. But when a Comanche warrior swears vengeance against both the Mexican and white settlers for crimes against his people, a clash of cultures begins. And two men will wage war to see that their culture survives.
