Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"A BAND OF HEROES IS DESPERATELY NEEDED IN A SAVAGE STRUGGLE TO STEM A COMANCHE BLOOBATH IN TEXAS, AND THERE HAPPENS TO BE ONE-THE BLACK JACKS. It was the worst nightmare come true for the fledgling Republic of Texas. The scattered Comanche bands have united into a mighty fighting force under a single great warrior chief and are sweeping over the vast Texas plains, avenging a massacre at the hands of the whites with a campaign of pure carnage. Sam Houston led Texans in the fight for independence from Mexico. Now he needs the assistance of the one man who has a chance of turning back the Comanche tide of terror-John Henry McAllen. McAllen and his volunteers, known as the Black Jacks, had fought side by side with Houston against Santa Anna. Retired now, they mount up and ride out to face their ultimate test, the greatest Comanche threat of all. But Houston's political foes plot in the shadows, making the trail McAllen and his men are riding even deadlier."-- Provided by publisher.
