4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 352p. index. This is one of the best books about any of the vital string of federal forts established in West Texas to tame the frontier. Basic Texas Books #83. Haley writes: "Fort Concho was not only the center of significant events; it was the geographic and strategic hinge upon which history swung." Here is how the Comanches were swept from the southern plains, that blocked at last the renegade Apaches along the Mexican border, creating a protective shield across the heart of Texas that allowed new settlements to thrive. J. Evetts Haley inscribed this copy to the legendary Snuff Garret and Carl Herzog inscribed it for Russ Todd, the Southwest book and art specialist. Bookseller Inventory #
