Inhaltsangabe: Not many have experienced so much of Texas history, first hand, like John James Dix. At the age of seven he had gone to Texas with his family, arriving in Stephen F. Austin's colony, and listened to the stories of his father who fought in the early battles of the Texas Revolution under heroes of the Republic-Austin and Travis. He drove steers, worked under General Zachary Taylor in the Mexican-American War, and after he married, he was a neighbor to Richard King on the Santa Gertrudis Ranch. He became a Texas Ranger and rode with John Salmon Old Rip Ford. These were only a few of Dix's many adventures, and in this detailed biography, Dan R. Manning brings to light the great history of a man who was part of that legendary foundation that became the Lone Star State.
Über den Autor: Dan R. Manning has written on a variety of subjects for Missouri Life, Ozarks Mountaineer, Texas Ranger Dispatch, American West, Old Mill News, and Farm Collector magazines. Scholarly works by him have appeared in Southwestern Historical Quarterly, and Military History of the West. As a founding member of the local historical society, he demonstrates milling techniques in a 19th century grist mill during annual celebrations. Through research and personal experience Dan has gained knowledge about early agricultural machinery and methods, including the raising and training of draft horses and mules. Dan's three- decade- long writing project on John James Dix, his wife's great, great grandfather, presents a clear picture of the difficult, yet fulfilling, life of a true Texas pioneer. Dan was raised in a Central Kansas farming community, and now resides with his wife, Betty, in the Missouri Ozarks.
