520    After an undisputed record of political achievement--
       leading the decisive battle for Texas independence at San 
       Jacinto, serving twice as president of the Republic of 
       Texas, twice again as a United States senator after 
       annexation, and finally as governor of Texas--Sam Houston 
       found himself in the winter of his life in a self-imposed 
       exile among the pines of East Texas. Houston was often a 
       bundle of complicated contradictions. He was a spirited 
       advocate for public education but had little formal 
       education himself. He was very much "a Jackson man" but 
       disagreed with his mentor on the treatment of Native 
       Americans. He was a slaveholder who opposed abolition but 
       scuttled his own political reputation by resisting the 
       South's move toward secession. After refusing to take an 
       oath of loyalty to the Confederacy in 1861, Houston was 
       swiftly evicted from the governor's office. "Let me tell 
       you what is coming," he later said from a window at the 
       Tremont Hotel in Galveston. "After the sacrifice of 
       countless millions of treasure and hundreds of thousands 
       of lives, you may win Southern independence if God be not 
       against you, but I doubt it." Houston died just two years 
       later, and the nation was indeed fractured. Ron Rozelle's 
       masterful biographical portrait here lingers on Houston's 
       final years, especially as lived out in Huntsville, when 
       so much of his life's work seemed on the verge of coming 
       undone. Artfully written for the general reader, Exiled: 
       The Last Days of Sam Houston is a compelling look at Sam 
       Houston's legacy and twilight years.
