The adventures of Big-Foot Wallace by John C Duval( Book )

8 editions published between 1936 and 1980 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William A. Wallace (1816?1899) went from his native Virginia to Texas in 1836, shortly after the battle of San Jacinto, "for the purpose . . . of taking pay out of the Mexicans for the murder of his brother and cousin." His experiences as a hunter, Indian fighter, member of the Mier Expedition (1842-1844), defender of the "old Republic" in the Mexican War, and Texas Ranger were chronicled by his comrade John C. Duval in this free-hand biography, first published in 1870. Because Duval, as the editors note, felt free to adapt his materials in order to make the book more interesting and used many novelistic devices, "in his own way he achieves something of the effect of the twentieth-century school of biographers. He makes his characters live." Although Part I, dealing with Big-Foot's adventures as a hunter and Indian fighter, is a mixture of fact and fiction, Part II, the account of his role in the Mier Expedition, is unretouched, told from the point of view of an actual participant, and "stands as the most realistic straight narrative of this dramatic chapter in Texas history. [It] is the heart of the biography. The Indian adventures are a prologue for it; and Part III, the final comedy of Big-Foot in the settlements, makes an epilogue." In this classic of early Texas, the reader will recognize three literary traditions of the nineteenth century: the journals and memoirs of the pioneers; the romantic adventure story; and the broadly humorous yarn of the American frontier.--Amazon.com

Southwest Heritage: A Literary History with Bibliographies by Mabel Major( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book describes the poetry and prose of the southwestern Indians, the narratives of the Spanish settlers and explorers, and the tall tales, ballads, poetry, and fiction of the Anglo-Americans. The book is divided into four parts: "Literature before the Anglo-American, to 1800," which examines the traditions and mythology of the southwestern Indians and the Spanish explorers as revealed in early literature; "Literature of Anglo-American Adventurers and Settlers, 1800-C. 1918," which analyzes the opening of the Southwest in the nineteenth century as revealed in the chronicles, travel books, ballads, and narratives of travelers and pioneers from the East; "Literature from C.1918-1948," which considers the more earnest documents, journals, letters in English and other languages, and state papers on the subject; and "Literature from 1948-1970," which discusses several methods of interpreting history as applied to the different genres of literature. Appended are two selected southwestern bibliographies, each designed for the general reader and the young reader. (Rb)
