The Texicans

By Nina Vida
Narrated by George Guidall / 9 hours 34 minutes

From acclaimed author Nina Vida comes a powerful novel set in the 1840s. The Texicans provides an illuminating glimpse at the rugged lives of the downtrodden in pioneer society- immigrants, slaves, Indians, and Mexicans. Joseph Kimmel is heading to San Antonio to settle his deceased brother's estate but becomes stranded on the vast open prairie when his horse is stolen. He is rescued by an egocentric Alsatian immigrant, but falls back into trouble when he marries a young blond girl. Running for their lives, Joseph and his new bride head to the hill country, where they hope to build a cattle ranch. Unfortunately, the ruthless Texas Rangers have other ideas. Vida's intense drama and realistic characters are supported by in-depth historical research and vividly depict the countless hardships of the American pioneers. Listeners will be spellbound by the fiery reading from narrator George Guidall. "Vida's luminous, dramatic seventh novel ... [is a] radiant work of historical fiction-vibrantly atmospheric and emotionally dense..."-Publishers Weekly, starred review "...a story as vast and action-packed as Texas itself. Rich with period detail, an elegant, character-driven novel about the clash of cultures that forged the Lone Star spirit."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review
