Unique among animals that ever trod across Texas, Uncle Sam was a camel born at sea. Arriving in Texas in 1856 as part of the U.S. Army's experimental Camel Corps, Uncle Sam must adapt to the challenges of a new land and the moods of his temperamental mule friend, Stormy. Together they explore Texas until their ambitions send them on different paths that ultimately converge in tragedy.
Spur Award-winning author Preston Lewis adds Uncle Sam's "autobiography" to his Texas Animal Legends Collection. Just Call Me Uncle Sam brings to life the tumultuous times of a camel born at sea.
