About the Book

This is a story loosely based on my Great Grandfather’s life. He ran away from his home in Mississippi and came to the frontier of Texas just prior to the Civil War. He became a cowboy on a working ranch, Texas Ranger and a member of the Tenth Texas Calvary. He was captured during the Battle of Vicksburg and escaped by jumping overboard from a steamboat taking him to the prison camp. He made his way back to Texas and started his adventures on the Texas Frontier.
