    Mary Ann Adams Maverick (Ma – Febru ), was an early Texas pioneer and author of memoirs which form an important source of information about daily life in and around San Antonio during the Republic of Texas period through the American Civil War.   “Austin Mitchell’s book Confessions of a Political Maverick is well worth a read. He was a political maverick and I enjoyed our partnership on the weekly TV show Target. I think his confession that he came to conclude that he should have stayed in New Zealand where he was a distinguished TV interviewer and commentator is right.”.
