Crossing Rio Pecos by Patrick Dearen( Book )

The mythic Old West - the war cry of the Indian, the blast of the cowboy's six-shooter, the crack of the stage-driver's whip, the thunder of the stampeding longhorn. While documented history was painting dreary lives for pioneers in many other locations, the Pecos stirred with color and drama and nurtured the stuff of legend. Long after irrigation and dams rendered the river a polluted trickle, Patrick Dearen went seeking out the crossings and the stories behind them. In

Dead man's boot by Patrick Dearen( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clay Andrews is like a dead man, adrift in an uncaring dark. But he's also searching, and in 1869 he has ridden to the Pecos River to find answers. Back in Central Texas, Clay's sister has died, and only on this river might he learn why. The person perhaps responsible may have fled here, but no one enters this no-man's-land except at his own peril. Comanches are on the prowl, and across the Pecos, Mescalero Apaches range all the way to the mysterious Guadalupe Mountains. In a dead man's boot, Clay finds a map to rumored gold in the Guadalupes. When Comanches approach, he flees upriver and finds Lil Casner at a lone schooner. Long abused in an arranged marriage, she must fend for herself while her obsessed husband combs the Pecos for the very map Clay has discovered. Upstream at the Bar W Ranch, two other haunted figures await. One is an experienced cowboy who has come to the Pecos for reasons that strangely parallel Clay's. The other is a shiftless cowhand in whose mind lurks something evil and deadly. Comanche attacks . . . a kidnapping . . . a chase through Apache country to Skeleton Cave and on to the Guadalupes. For Clay, the answers will never come unless he rides into a mountain range where Indian spirits may guard a golden hoard
Lone Star lost : buried treasures in Texas by Patrick Dearen( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patrick Dearen went in search of buried treasures, not gold or silver or jewels, but untapped tales worthy of J. Frank Dobie. And he found for "Lone Star Lost" ten such stories that spring from the bedrock, shared with the author by native sons and daughters who know that the real treasure is our Texas heritage. These stories grew from the land - the Texas soil that gives birth to history and sprinkles it with legend. From the piney woods on the east to the Chihuahuan Desert on the west, from the subtropical marshes on the south to the mountains on the north, Texas is alive with the kind of wonder that has sent men in quest of their own Cibolas for generations

Halff of Texas : a merchant rancher of the Old West by Patrick Dearen( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mayer Halff imigrated to Texas as a fourteen-year-old, got his start as a foot peddler, and eventually controlled a vast cattle empire. Throughout his life, he was at ease whether dining with a U.S. president at a plush metropolitan banquet or squatting across a campfire from a dirt-streaked cowboy in some forsaken cow camp. One of those cowhands, Bob Beverly, perhaps best described Halff's spirit: "He was a pioneer and always built for the future. He was the kind that made this the greatest republic the world has ever known. . . I take my hat off to him and his kind."
