Defender of the Texas Frontier, another 5-star review

Jaxson Chavez

This book is worth reading for the history alone.

I did a lot my own research while reading, because although I know the author obviously took liberty with the characters and even some of the timing of events, I really wanted to know how deep the fiction went. From what I could find, this is an extremely accurate account of events.

This book is not for the faint of heart however and I have to warn you…it is GRAPHIC. This is the real story and the author does not spare the details of war or of life.

This is a great book – for its history and for the story surrounding it. This book is beautifully written with so many details and beautiful descriptions. The characters felt so real to me. I loved them, cried with them and even missed them when I finished the book.

I think everyone should read this book, should know the story Jack Hays and the other Texas Rangers. The author has written this historical fiction novel with great attention to detail. 

I highly recommend this book to fans of historical fiction or anyone who wants to read a well written, unique novel.

  1. Great commentary, Dave! Are you evading Covid-19 & descendants? All four household members have both shots & recovered, I had no reaction at all.

    What are you writing nowadays?

    1. Hi John, I have successfully vaccinated as have my two sons, daughters-in-law and granddaughters (3) are in line. Thankfully nobody in the family has been ill with Covid.

      I’m now working on another biographical novel about Hasdai ibn Shaprut, another Jew who was very powerful during the reign of And Ar-Rhamman II, who brought all of Andalusia together into his caliphate in the 900’s AD.

      Hope you are doing well. The situation in Myanmar must be troubling for you. Hope none of your friends there have been affected adversely!
