Texas Smoke: Muzzle-Loaders on the Frontier

Suggested Further Readings

If you are, by now, interested in learning more about guns in American and Texas history, you’ll find that there aren’t too many books just about guns that aren’t full of technical information that might not interest you. That’s one of the reasons this book was written.

There are, however, two books that have some information about guns together with a lot of other things which are interesting and one that’s just about weapons, and none of them are full of technical information that you have to wade through to get to what you’re looking for. Probably the one that has the least information about guns—though it was the first one I ever read that had any information at all about them—is a book called The Book of Cowboys, by a man named Holling Clancy Holling. It’s an old book, out of print now, and is really a storybook for fourth- to sixth-grade students, but don’t let that make you decide not to hunt it out and read it. It’s good, and it’s fun to read.
