This is a fantastic bit of history for the state of Texas. Any Texan or history buff will enjoy it thoroughly, from Indian wars through the Civil War. This particular author is a proponent of factual data in all of his publications, thus insuring historical accuracy. I discovered that one of my distant relatives was in two of the battles described therein, thus making it even more pertinent. I sent a copy to one of my grandsons who also enjoys history.

A description of each action, known location and historical markers cover the listings. Overview maps of the actions are included in the book but a person would have to check other maps elsewhere for details on some of the locations.
Also, included is an informative and interesting section describing some of the leaders participating in these actions.
I will drive clear across Texas just to see and read a historical marker setting in a cow pasture. Does this sound like you? This is an excellent book to learn something about battles in Texas. It is also an excellent guide to get you headed in the right location.
