Jane Long: Texas Journey

By Mary Dodson Wade

Illustrated by Virginia Marsh Roeder

Part of a series of biographies of Texas Heroes for Young Readers, this volume chronicles the life of Jane Long, known as the “Mother of Texas.” Jane was a strong-willed woman earned her this title. She married a doctor and moved to Galveston Bay, where she stayed even after her husband was killed in Mexico. She opened a boarding house that entertained important Texas Revolutionary heroes -- William Travis, Stephen Austin, Sam Houston and Mirabeau Lamar. In a time when women had little control over their lives, she enjoyed her independent lifestyle and never remarried.
