Deaton, a Texan of pioneer days, and republished by one of his descendants - Floyd J. Holmes, Fort Worth, Texas." This rare history was first published in 1894. In the introduction, Deaton states his desire to record the hardships of Texan frontiersmen and women and conflicts with local Indian tribes, as no one else at the time was doing so, and he felt qualified as a reliable source as he personally knew many of the settlers involved in these conflicts and lived in the area at the time. Each chapter is composed of stories of Comanche and Kiowa attacks on settlers. Howes D-179. ; Oblong Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 161 pp . (Inventory #: 013098)
