The Texas–Indian wars were a series of 19th-century conflicts between settlers in Texas and the Southern Plains Indians. These conflicts began when the first wave of European-American settlers moved into Spanish Texas. They continued through Texas's time as part of Mexico, when more Europeans and Anglo-Americans arrived, to the subsequent declaration of independence by the Republic of Texas. The conflicts did not end until thirty years after Texas joined the United States.

This fourth and final volume of the Savage Frontier series completes the history of the Texas Rangers and frontier warfare in the Republic of Texas era. During this period of time, fabled Captain John Coffee Hays and his small band of Rangers were often the only d frontier fighters employed to keep the peace. By 1844, Captain Hays' Rangers had forever changed the nature of frontier warfare with the use of the Colt five-shooter repeating pistol.

This third volume of the Savage Frontier series focuses on the evolution of the Texas Rangers and frontier warfare in Texas during the years 1840 and 1841. Comanche Indians were the leading rival to the pioneers during this period. Peace negotiations in San Antonio collapsed during the Council House Fight, prompting what would become known as the “Great Comanche Raid” in the summer of 1840. Stephen L. Moore covers the resulting Battle of Plum Creek and other engagements in new detail. Rangers, militiamen, and volunteers made offensive sweeps into West Texas and the Cross Timbers area of present Dallas-Fort Worth. During this time Texass Frontier Regiment built a great military road, roughly parallel to modern Interstate 35. Moore also shows how the Colt repeating pistol came into use by Texas Rangers. Finally, he sets the record straight on the battles of the legendary Captain Jack Hays.Through extensive use of primary military documents and first-person accounts, Moore provides a clear view of life as a frontier fighter in the Republic of Texas. The reader will find herein numerous and painstakingly recreated muster rolls, as well as casualty lists and a compilation of 1841 rangers and minutemen. For the exacting historian or genealogist of early Texas, the Savage Frontier series is an indispensable resource on early nineteenth-century Texas frontier warfare.
  • I purchased Moore's fabulous San Jacinto book recently and this one had been left on my shelf for several years until I read it again, my interest in this subject re-kindled. I have been fascinated with the Comanches since 2010 and have read the classic Empire on the Summer Moon.
    This book in my opinion is better than even that great work. Every Comanche-Texan battle of 1840-41 and the order of battle is covered here. It is amazing how much Moore knows about early Texas history. Definitely worth buying for Texas history buffs.

  • I began an extensive study of early Texas history about six months ago to supplement what I thought was a fairly good grasp and knowledge of Texas History. I was wrong. It is obvious Texas history is many sided and deep. This series is a good study on how Texas began, as a colony, then a Republic and eventually a State to be self reliant, a tradition that holds even today. I am quite certain a revisionist historian will take issue but the presentation, after examining several sources is factual. It also describes, as best the author could of presenting the issue, that is from a 19th century perspective rather than a 21st century perspective, that is opinionated by attitudes today. He goes to the source and presents the actions factually. Unfortunately many so called historians do not take that approach and use little evidence to back up their perceptions. I strongly suggest reading this with an open mind although it certainly does not depict Indians as noble savages, it is war and shown as such. Like all wars it shows the tragic side as well, both to the loser and winner. I also suggest you find and read revisionist writing to compare the two. It will help you recognize revisionist thought and writing when you see it as some are very good at concealing their agenda.

  • interesting history on the texas minutemen and the events of those times.

  • My third cousin wrote the series of the fabulous book. I have recommened it to my friends
