The Texan Scouts is the second in the Altsheler's Texan Series, which includes The Texan Star and The Texan Triumph, and concerns the fortunes of Ned Fulton and his friends. The second phase is the coming of Santa Anna with an overwhelming force, the fall of the Alamo, the massacre of Goliad and the dark days of Texas. Yet the period of gloom is relieved by the last stand of Crockett, Bowie, and their famous comrades.

This edition of the book contains the original illustration, rejuvenated, and nine additional illustrations that are unique to this edition of the book.

Joseph Alexander Altsheler was born in Three Springs, Hart County, Kentucky to Joseph and Louise (Snoddy) Altsheler. In 1885, he took a job at the Louisville Courier-Journal as a reporter and later worked as an editor. He started working for the New York World in 1892, first as the paper's Hawaiian correspondent and then as the editor of the World's tri-weekly magazine. Due to a lack of suitable stories, he began writing children's stories for the magazine.

Altsheler married Sarah Boles on May 30, 1888, and had one son. He and his family were in Germany when World War I began. The difficult journey home took a toll on Altsheler's health and he was never the same. He died in New York City in 1919. All fifty of Mr. Altsheler's novels and forty-three of his short stories are in circulation today.
