  • The Making of James A. Michener's Texas


James Michener's best-selling historical novel comes to the screen in this made-for-TV drama. In 1821, the Texas territory was still ruled by Mexico, but a growing number of settlers were unhappy with the despotic leadership of the notorious General Santa Ana (Lloyd Battista). In time, a movement arose calling for Texas to win its independence from Mexico, and under the leadership of Stephen Austin (Patrick Duffy) and Sam Houston (Stacy Keach), these demands evolved into a full-scale revolution, leading to the legendary battle of the Alamo, spearheaded by Davy Crocket (John Schneider) and Jim Bowie (David Keith). Originally shown as a two-part miniseries, James A. Michener's Texas also features Rick Schroeder and Randy Travis; Charlton Heston narrates. ~ Mark Deming
