Lisa Waller Rogers

Lisa Waller Rogers has a blog.  Very interesting, but little Texana.  However, in her "About Lisa Waller Rogers" notes she shows her several books of Texana for young readers.
 
  • A Texas Sampler: Historical Recollections (primary source material/all levels, Texas Tech University Press, 199 8) was a 1999 finalist for the Texas Institute of Letters Best Book for Children/Young People Award. It is endorsed by First Lady Laura Bush.

 

  • Angel of the Alamo: A True Story of Texas (middle grade biography, W.S. Benson & Co., 2000) was a 2005 nominee for the Texas State Reading Association Golden Spur Award.

  • Get Along, Little Dogies: The Chisholm Trail Diary of Hallie Lou Wells (middle grade historical fiction, TTUP, 2001) was a finalist for the 2003-2004 Lamplighter Award.

·       The Great Storm: The Hurricane Diary of J.T. King, Galveston, 1900 (middle grade historical fiction, TTUP, 2002) won the 2002 Western Heritage Award for Outstanding Juvenile Book and was a 2004-2005 Lamplighter Award Finalist. In acknowledgment, the Texas House of Representatives adopted House Resolution No. 995 stating that "Ms. Rogers has distinguished herself as one of the premier storytellers of our time."

 

· With the publication of Remember the Alamo: The Runaway Scrape Diary of Belle Wood (middle grade historical fiction, TTUP, 2003), "Lisa Waller Rogers has created a new children's classic of Texas literature," wrote Deborah Hardin in the Southwestern Historical Quarterly (October 2004), the oldest continuously published scholarly journal in Texas.

 

All books are available for order online at Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble
