RIP FORD'S TEXAS is a first hand account of Texas history from just after San Jacinto until the 1890's. Ford played a significant roll in Texas history as a Texas Ranger in south Texas, as a politician, as commander of Confederate forces in the last land battle of the Civil War, in the Mexican War and the Indian Wars. He tells his story in a very gripping and vivid manner. You can almost hear the war whoops of the Comanches and smell the powder from the gun battles. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in Texas history. Oates does a great job in editing this work. This was originally published in the early 1960's. Ford's anecdotes are priceless.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
