In this insightful biography, Light Townsend Cummins turns the historical spotlight on Emily Austin, the daughter who followed the trails of the western frontier to Texas, where she saw the burgeoning young colony erupt in revolution, establish a proud republic, and usher in the period of antebellum statehood.    Emilys journey was one of remarkable personal change as the rigors of frontier life shaped her into a uniquely self-reliant southern woman, one who fulfilled the role of the plantation mistress while taking a distinct hand in ambitious public ventures.

Despite her ties to influential family members, including her brother Stephen F. Austin, Emilys determined spirit allowed her to live on her own terms.    In all of her notable activities, Emily principally remained a devoted daughter, sister, wife, and mother who proudly clung to her Austin roots. Utilizing her familys written correspondence, Cummins provides insight into Emilys multifaceted personality and the relationships that sustained her through times of tribulation and triumph.    Emily was very much her own woman, with strong, well-articulated personal feelings centered on a steely personality.

Her rock-solid resolve for action enabled her to survive almost six decades of frontier hardship . . . Above all else, Emily Austin was the touchstone at the center of an extended family that provided a common point of reference for four generations . . .     Light Cummins, from  Emily Austin
