Jack Jackson page 72 Comanche Moon 1979

Jack Jackson, aka Jaxon 1941 - 2006

Jackson's abiity to stay clear eyed about his states history is remarkable. He gives context to actions in a way that the typical modern historian might avoid in an effort to draw in contemporary judgements that engage the reader easier.

His description of the plight of the tenth calvary 'Buffalo Soldier' is a case in point. Jackson's humor is as present as ever, but also the real situations that confronted actual historical people in his cast of hundreds in Commanche Moon.

"Well... here's th' horses we've been waiting months for..."
