This HISTORICAL NOVEL is 40 years of Texas history seen by a Mexican orphan boy called Paco. Book one starts you on his interacting with many Texas heroes and even more down to earth folks.
Paco is a good kid in the BIG THICKET series of short stories. He is patterned after Laura Ingles in Little House on the Prairie, a TV show that lasted 9 years. Paco shows good morals and has an optimistic behavior; he has deep strong feelings and shows he cares by making himself useful.
Being raised from age 9 to 19 In Beaumont Texas where these stories are set and doing my homework about Texas has given me relative experience. I wrote from love of this area.
