This collection of true tales brings to life the drama, romance, history, and excitement of the Texas and western frontier. From poignant life vignettes of gritty settlers anxious to carve out new dreams in spite of hostile Indian raids, to whiskey-guzzling gun-slingers; from the daring exploits of trail-driving cowboys to the majesty of the free-roaming buffalo and longhorns; it is perfect for reading around the campfire on a starry summer night or gathered around a cosy fireside, is a must-have for any Americana or Texana aficionado.
