About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: A Stray Yankee in Texas

Publisher: New York: Redfield, 1853

Publication Date: 1853

Edition: First Edition.


An account of the author's travels among the wild animals and wilder men in the hinterlands of old Texas. The second half of the book is titled "Lynch Law, " and is concerned with desperadoes, gambling, and vigilante justice. HOWES H140. RADER 1757. CLARK, OLD SOUTH 380. HENDERSON, p.84. The front hinge was repaired many years ago, the rear gutter of the spine has been crudely sewn on (! ), and the front gutter could use some attention. The binding, however, is tight, the spine gilding legible, and the contents good. An appealingly rough-hewn example of a scrappy Texan yarn. Bookseller Inventory # 12427
