Life and Adventures of "Billy" Dixon
by Billy Dixon

The Battle of Adobe Walls
by Edward Campbell Little


Two essential accounts of the south western plains in frontier days

This special edition book contains two works-'Billy' Dixon's remarkable autobiography of his life on the south western plains of the American frontier of the post Civil War period and a useful and interesting article taken from the pages of Pearsons Magazine which describes the renowned battle at Abode Walls with contributions from many of the participants. For anybody interested in the history of the West, 'Billy' Dixon's name will be a familiar one. Drawn to the excitement of frontier life when no more than a boy, he lived life in full measure as a teamster, buffalo hunter and scout for the army. Dixon was well known as an outstanding marksman and when the day of battle came in July 1874 there were few among the defenders of Adobe Walls more prepared or more equal to the challenges of those three desperate days of conflict. Here legends were made as the Comanches and Kiowas under the renowned Quanah Parker charged to destruction time and again. By Dixon's side fought the young 'Bat Masterson' soon to be known as another figure of fame on the frontier. After Abode Walls Dixon's involvement with Miles' expedition brought him to yet another heroic fight with hostile Indians in the 'Buffalo Wallow Fight'. Together these two narratives make a unique book. Available in soft cover and hard back with dustjacket.
