THE RAW FRONTIER, Vol. 2
Armed Conflict Along The Texas Coastal Bend
By Keith Guthrie
As the defeated Mexican armies retreated to Mexico, hundreds of soldiers
deserted rather than go home. They became rustlers and gathered the wild
cattle roaming the countryside. They competed with disgruntled Texans
who organized gangs to steal cattle and terrorize settlers. As soldiers who
returned home from the Texas army found their possessions either stolen
or destroyed and tried to rebuild, they found that they had to keep their
guns handy to fend off Indian raids, or attacks by Mexican rustlers and
gringo cutthroats. But the settlers persevered and built new lives. The stories
passed down and collected by the author are at the least unique. The author, a former newspaper
publisher, makes his home in Taft with Iris, his wife and part-time editor.
