Front flyleaf features the following note from previous owner historian Alexander Dienst which has bled somewhat onto the title page: "This is a valuable contribution to the biography of Texas and should be carefully indexed by the owner. The first 150 pages are entirely omitted in the index at close of volume. And throughout the volume there are many items that are well worth indexing. Alex Dienst."

    More Information:

    Of Indian Wars, Jenkins said: "This is Brown's most important book and one of the best works on Texas Indian fighters and early pioneers. The information was gathered over his entire fifty years in Texas, and the text was completed shortly before his death. Although he felt his History of Texas was his major contribution, that work pales beside Indian Wars and Pioneers of Texas for interest, information, and reliability."
