FACTUAL REPRESENTATION

OF OUR WESTERN TREASURES

Folks, although I am a tried and true Texan, I must admit that I have not read of the strategy and planning of Sam Houston in his brilliant defeat of Santa Anna and the Mexican army at San Jacinto. Sometimes, these old stories are tucked away gathering dust on some dealer’s shelf. Here is a great one entitled:P>

SAM HOUSTON AND HIS BATTLES

which was reprinted here by the great writer Cyrus Townsend Brady for McClures magazine in 1902. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the revolutionary leader Sam Houston and his Army of the Republic like this one are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive

I hope you appreciate the effort.
