About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The book begins with Spence Pierce, Texas Ranger, in the little town of Lampasas, Texas. His mission is to capture a murder suspect who shows up in a saloon with his brothers. After a rope trick that suddenly took the family members by surprise, the murder suspect is captured and turned into the Burnet County Sheriff s office. Spence returns home for a much needed rest where he renews his family connection, breaks a couple horses and trains one to pull his wife s carriage. Going into town for supplies he encounters an Army Major who is in search for horses to take to Arizona to outfit the cavalry at Fort Huachuca. The fort currently had foot soldiers but was tasked to pursue and bring in the Apache Indians in the area. The foot soldiers could travel 3-5 miles a day while the Apache moved on horseback and was always gone before the soldiers could arrive. Taking the Major out to his ranch, Spence was able to sell his horse herd to the Army, with conditions that he delivered them to the fort in Arizona. Spence returns to Fort Stockton where the Ranger Company is based and requests a leave of absence from the Rangers. He is tasked to capture and bring to justice the notorious outlaw Wild Bill Longley before he is allowed to take his leave. Longley is found lying up in a saloon with his girl friend and sister. Longley is captured but the young man, after nearly getting shot, decided the Texas Rangers wasn t what he thought it was. Spence finds enough horse wranglers to start the drive of his horse herd to Arizona. He has hired an old Mexican vaquero and a want-to-be stagecoach robber that had bungled his first job by being shot by his girlfriend and ran over by the stage. Spence hired several others to help with the drive. The drive begins and takes its path from Fort Stockton, through the mountain passes north of El Paso and across New Mexico. During the drive the horse herd is attacked by a group of horse thieves. The wranglers continue driving the horses towards Arizona. The camp cook gets separated from the drive and is surrounded by Indians. Spence joins back up with his horse herd in time to encounter riders following his herd. The wranglers take precautions and finally the riders come into camp. It turns out that they had been hired by the Army to escort Spence and his horse herd through the worst of the Apache lands. They came to the rescue when the horse herd is hit at night by the Apaches and after a skirmish, the horses are found and returned. Arizona storms present as much of a problem as horse thieves and Apaches. The high wind and heavy rains cause a stampede of frightened horses. Finally Spence gets his horses to Arizona but several wranglers threaten to leave when they approach Tombstone. Fortunately the Army meets the herd to escort them through the Apache hills north of Tombstone to Fort Huachuca. Delivering the horses Spence is offered a retainer if he and his men would stay and help train the soldiers in horse craft as most of the soldiers had never ridden before. One night in a local saloon Spence is approached by an Arizona Ranger that had heard he was in town and that he was a Texas Ranger. The Arizona Rangers had just been organized and they did not have any experience in fighting Indians or outlaws, both of which were in abundance in Southern Arizona. Spence and his men signed on to help with tracking and the capture of the largest band of outlaws in the area. After several weeks they finally found the outlaws in their camp and a gunfight erupted that killed an Arizona Ranger and a rancher in the first rounds of fire. The outlaws escaped during the night and the Rangers are forced to track them through the mountains and into New Mexico. The end brings Spence and his men going different ways, some to remain in Arizona, others to try their hand at gold and silver mining and a couple to return to Texas with Spence.

About this Item: Texas Christian University Press,U.S., United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised. Language: English . Brand New Book. First published in 1988, Castle Gap and the Pecos Frontier was acclaimed by reviewers as superb, significant, and utterly delightful. In this revised edition, Patrick Dearen draws upon the latest in scholarship to update his study of the Pecos River country of West Texas. It s a land wild with tales that blend history, geography, and folklore, and from his search emerge six fascinating accounts:Castle Gap, a break in a mesa twelve miles east of the Pecos River, used by Comanches, emigrants, stage drivers, and cattle drovers;Horsehead Crossing, the most infamous ford of the Old West;Juan Cordona Lake, a salt lake where sandstorms and skull-baking sun defied early efforts to mine salt vital to survival;The bulto or ghost who wanders the Fort Stockton night;Lost Wagon Train, a forty-wagon caravan buried in the sands;The lost mine of Will Sublett, who found gold and kept its location secret unto death.Although linked by the search for treasure, the stories are as varied as the land itself. They speak eloquently of the Pecos country, its heritage, and its people. Seller Inventory # AAS9780875653884

About this Item: Texas State Historical Association,U.S., United States, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Today Fort Lancaster sits as a ghostly ruin in west Texas, far removed from any major highway. However, this frontier post once played a major role in the protection of the primary southern route to California after the discovery of gold. Built along Live Oak Creek near the junction with the Pecos, Fort Lancaster was established in 1855 as one of a chain of posts along the Military Road from San Antonio to El Paso. Until the establishment of Fort Stockton by troops from Fort Lancaster, this was the only garrison between Fort Clark and Fort Davis. Manned by only one of two companies of the First Infantry, Fort Lancaster was one of the most isolated posts in Texas. The only civilian presence was a sutler and a stage stop for the overland mail. Maintaining the post, patrolling and protecting the road and occasional contact with Indians made up most of the routine. Official inspections, the arrival of the camel expedition, the passage of the Regiment of Mounted Rifles, and several pitched fights with Apaches added spice to an otherwise predictable existence. The history of Fort Lancaster is not one of great men or great events. It is the story of the commonplace life of soldiers on the isolated American frontier during a time when communications relied upon horse and wagon, and the road they guarded was the vital link to California. Remote, poorly constructed, and inadequately garrisoned, Fort Lancaster stands as an excellent example of the typical frontier post in the pre-Civil War era. Today Fort Lancaster is operated by Texas Parks and Wildlife as a State Historic Park. As isolated today as it was when active, the atmospheric ruins of Fort Lancaster are a stark reminder of Army life on the Texas frontier. Seller Inventory # TNP9780876111734

About this Item: Texas Christian University Press,U.S., United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised. Language: English . Brand New Book. First published in 1988, Castle Gap and the Pecos Frontier was acclaimed by reviewers as superb, significant, and utterly delightful. In this revised edition, Patrick Dearen draws upon the latest in scholarship to update his study of the Pecos River country of West Texas. It s a land wild with tales that blend history, geography, and folklore, and from his search emerge six fascinating accounts:Castle Gap, a break in a mesa twelve miles east of the Pecos River, used by Comanches, emigrants, stage drivers, and cattle drovers;Horsehead Crossing, the most infamous ford of the Old West;Juan Cordona Lake, a salt lake where sandstorms and skull-baking sun defied early efforts to mine salt vital to survival;The bulto or ghost who wanders the Fort Stockton night;Lost Wagon Train, a forty-wagon caravan buried in the sands;The lost mine of Will Sublett, who found gold and kept its location secret unto death.Although linked by the search for treasure, the stories are as varied as the land itself. They speak eloquently of the Pecos country, its heritage, and its people. Seller Inventory # AAS9780875653884

About this Item: Arcadia Publishing (SC), United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1859, the US military established Fort Stockton to gain control of Comanche Springs, which formed an oasis in the midst of arid West Texas. In the town that grew up beside the fort, a colorful mix of hardy pioneers--Peter Gallagher, Cesario Torres, Frank Rooney, Father Jose Ferra, Annie Frazier Johnson Riggs, and others--struggled (and sometimes fought) to construct a viable farming and ranching community in the vast, isolated terrain of Pecos County. Later, railroads, highways, air bases, oil, natural gas, and wind farms joined water as forces shaping the city s history. A century and a half after its founding, Fort Stockton is an innovative city with high-tech dreams, yet the traces and tales of its Old West heritage remain vividly alive along the banks of Comanche Creek.

About this Item: iUniverse. Paperback. Condition: New. 292 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.8in.Captain Will Cole, late of the Confederate armyand an ex-Texas Ranger prior to the waris released from a Union prisoner of war camp along with about a hundred other rebels. A stopover in Dallas results in meeting and being hired by a seemingly upscale family, the Clayhorns from Tennessee, to guide their party and four heavily loaded Conestogas to farmland purchased by them near San Pecos. While still in Dallas, attempts are made on the lives of the Clayhorns by four would-be assassins who are then killed by Cole. Later, during the trip west, Will senses something wrong with the Clayhorns demeanor, but is distracted by a trio of thugs dogging their trail. When he confronts the thugs, Cole recognizes the three as a familiar old outlaw and his two equally evil sons. He and Frank Clayhorn disarm the men and take them to the sheriff in Cleburne. Things get murkier from there. One Clayhorn turns out to be a traitor to the South. Another Clayhorn is later accused of having helped finance the assassination of President Lincoln. After Cole and party reach Ft. Stockton, the climax encompasses the essence of the Texas Frontier at that time. Northern and Southern Comanches, Apaches, and Kiowas--all natural enemies of each other--act as one to attack the fort! This item ships from multiple locations.

About this Item: Lulu.com, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This is a story of fiction but inspired by the love of trucking and simple rural farm life as it was in the 50s and 60s. A few hours east of Fort Stockton, Texas, Julie saw the sign indicating she was still a long way from San Antonio. Her eyes felt tired. Several miles back, she had nodded off just a second, and it scared her so bad she almost went off the road into a rocky hillside. Second thoughts haunted her mind about the decision she had made to try for the Alamo city tonight. It was now 11:00 PM and the rain hadn t let up making the road almost impossible to see. She cranked up the heater as the outside temperature dropped considerably colder the further east she traveled. She picked up a Del Rio station on the radio and turned the volume up to keep the cab filled with noise. The country music eased her tired mind as the song play-ing was one of her favorites yeah, she thought that s me, Julie Dickinson with nothing but eighteen wheels under my seat and miles of highway ahead.
