My rare 1900 First Edition was published by Ben C. Jones & Co. Printers and is the original one volume edition. It has the copyright information on the title page that can be seen in one of the pictures.

It has been rebound in a red cloth cover that has gold lettering and new end papers. Most copies offered are smoke and/or water damaged but my copy seems to have escaped with only light puckering to the bottom corners which can be seen in some of the pictures.

Basic Texas Books ranks this book as 193 and has the following information: "The work contains 132 accounts of early pioneers, mostly as told by them directly to Sowell....Most of the work relates to Indian fights and Texas Rangers. This material is fresh and for the most part not repeated in Brown, Wilbarger, or other works."

Dobie states on pp. 58 & 60: "Meaty with the character of ready-to-fight but peace-seeking Texas pioneers, Sowell will some day be recognized as an extraordinary chronicler."

Graff 3909. Howes lists the book S797 and has this information: "Nearly all copies were either destroyed or damaged by fire."

Rader 2957. Raines, p. 193.

Tate, 'The Indians of Texas: An Annotated Research Bibliography' 2432: "Includes numerous anecdotes and first-hand information, but not always trustworthy." The Handbook of Texas Online (Sowell).
