Summary
"After seeing Texas, Martín De León was ready to leave his comfortable lifestyle in Mexico and head to the beautiful wilderness. His wife Patricia caught her husband's enthusiasm, and they, along with their two children, settled on the Nueces River. The couple eventually had ten children, and Martín. . .became an empresario, or land contractor, the first person of Mexican descent to establish a Texas colony. . . . This is the story of the family's amazing accomplishments."--p. [4] of cover
