The book provides depiction of social life in Texas when it was as a colony & a republic. Author served w/the Texas Rangers & lived for awhile w/the Comanches, learning their language & representing them in making a treaty w/the Texans in 1838. He provides anecdotes on men he knew such as James Bowie, Sam Houston, Stephen Austin, David G. Burnet, Gail Bordern, Padre Michael Muldoon, R.M. Williamson, and others.

This book has penciled notations on the first several pages as corrections for the facsimile to be printed from it, it has loose label on copyright page "Facsimile by The Steck Company, Austin, Texas" and remnants of adhesive where it had been adhered to bottom of the page. On the title page a loose label with wording "Facsimile by the Steck Company, Austin, Texas" and remnants of adhesive on top of page where it had been adhered. There are penciled page numbers on frontispage and title page. The boards say Steck Company, and it has the additional facsimile pages tipped in the front of the book. The boards have been taped to the book with white tape in joints. We believe this to be the copy that the Steck Company used to print the facsimile. It appears that they replaced the original boards with their new boards. Some insect prepredations on the spine. N° de ref. de la librería 034461
