Summary
"The dramatic episode of the drawing of the black beans makes the Mier Expedition one of the most memorable events in Texas history. The printed story of any person who survived the ordeal of almost twenty one months of captivity and the lottery of death in the drawing of the black beans is worthy of consideration... One of the first accounts published after the prisoners were released." Dust jacket
