Jack Jackson page 41 Commanche Moon 1979

Jack Jackson, aka Jaxon 1941 - 2006

Jackson's biography of Cynthia Ann Parker, captured by Commanche raiders in 1836 at the age of nine and recaptured by white settlers some 14 years later, who then returned her to her living relatives, touches on all the elements of Texas and frontier history that is familair to anyone who has seen cowboy movies, but in a detail and a presentation that makes it actual human history versus adventure and fantasy.

Jackson's truthfullness in reporting actual events makes for a stiff point-to-point presentation of those facts on some of his pages. He did not lean upon too much interpretation of events to make the plotting smoother, which is the method of historical-fiction.

"Baby sez it hongry."
