Mier Men, The Adventures & Sufferings of Colorful Texans on the Mier Expedition 
       A book for young people and adult general readers.
The true story of a group of Texas adventurers who invaded Mexico, fought a battle, surrendered, walked to Mexico City in chains, and were imprisoned in Perote Castle. Their ordeal, especially having to draw beans in a lottery for their lives, has  captured the imaginations of Texans through the years.
