Adobe Walls

by T. Lindsay Baker, Adobe Walls Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Adobe Walls books, In the spring of 1874 a handful of men and one women set out for the Texas Panhandle to seek their fortunes in the great buffalo hunt. Moving south to follow the herds, they intended to establish a trading post to serve the hunter, or “hide men.” At a place called Adobe Walls they dug blocks from the sod and built their center of operations After operating for only a few months, the post was attacked one sultry June morning by angry members of several Plains Indian tribes, whose physical and cultural survival depending on the great bison herd that were rapidly shrinking before the white men’s guns. Initially defeated, that attacking Indians retreated. But the defenders also retreated leaving the deserted post to be burned by Indians intent on erasing all traces of the white man’s presence. Nonetheless, tracing did remain, and in the ashes and dirt were buried minute details of the hide men’s lives and the battle that so suddenly changed them. A little more than a century later white men again dug into the sod at Adobe Walls. The nineteenth-century men dug for profits, but the modern hunters sere looking for the natural time capsule inadvertently left by those earlier adventurers. The authors of this book, a historian and an archeologists, have dug into the sod and into far-flung archives to sift reality form the long-romanticized story of Adobe Walls, its residents, and the Indians who so fiercely resented their presence. The full story of Adobe Walls now tells us much about the life and work of the hide men, about the dying of the Plains Indian culture, and about the march of white commerce across the frontier.

Moon Medicine

by Mike Blakely, Moon Medicine Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Moon Medicine books, When Honoré Greenwood sits down to tell his tale, people listen. Friend of such stalwarts of the West as Kit Carson, Thomas Fitzpatrick, John Hatcher, and the Brent brothers, Charles and William, Honoré, at ninety-nine, has lived the life that has become the dime novel. As a young schoolboy, Jean Guy was considered a genius. The only thing distracting him from his love of books was his love for a kitchen maid, Nicole. When Nicole is raped and brutalized, Jean exacts revenge, murdering the rapist and stowing away on an English packet bound for New Orleans. It is there that the young Jean Guy changes his name and becomes Honoré Greenwood, soon to become one of the legends of the American West. New Orleans is an exciting place for the young Honoré, but falling in love with Gabriela Badfillo-a beautiful young woman from Taos, New Mexico, who is promised to another in an arranged marriage-forces Honoré to flee, brokenhearted into the wilderness. He volunteers for a most dangerous project, building a fort right in the heart of Comanche country. His orders are to establish trade with the warlike, horse-rich Comanches. The Mexican War and the California Gold Rush usher chaos into the plains. And the Comanches are a proud, powerful, and unpredictable people, but Honoré earns their trust, but the vile whiskey trader, Bill Snakehead Jackson, is happy corrupting the Comanches and breeding violence between them and their ancient enemies, the Apaches. It will take all of Honoré's genius and his strange power to hold the trade together. Because his power follows the phases of the moon enabling him to go without sleep for days, the Comanches dub it Moon Medicine. Through it all, Honoré becomes a successful trader and ransom negotiator, earning the title Plenty Man. But when Gabriela desperately calls for help, Honoré will risk everything he has for the woman he still loves. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
