Assume that the American rebellion has failed, George Washington is dead and the few surviving revolutionaries, led by Andrew Jackson, have fled to the Spanish territory called Texas. There are still hopes for independance but how can they oppose the mighty forces of Spain? Then David Crockett meets John Paul Jones II and before long there is a Texas Navy in the form of a ship called the Wasp.
This is the background to a new alternative history naval fiction novel by Jason Vail, released for Kindle in August, Lone Star Rising: The Voyage of the Wasp.
