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."
