About the Author

If you will read one page of this book you will recognize instantly that G. B. Ray is no novice at the writing of history, but is a practiced hand at this most difficult of all lit­erary genres.

A native of that section of Texas which is the setting for this bloody segment of reconstruction history, G. B. Ray knows the gory ground of this feuding, and knows many of the descendants of the families involved on both sides of the struggle. The author has talked with many of these persons, and so has got first-hand information which is passed on to the reader.

The author's skill at this particular kind of writing is nowhere more tellingly revealed than in the chapter headings of the present book, which trace the suspense that is built up in the manner of a good mystery novel. But this is history, not fiction, and it is written with beautiful competence.
