A vast and desolate region, the Texas–New Mexico borderlands have long been an ideal setting for intrigue and illegal dealings, never more so than in the lawless early days of cattle trafficking and trade among the Plains tribes and Comancheros. The book Confederates and Comancheros takes us to the borderlands in the 1860s and 1870s for an in-depth look at Union-Confederate skullduggery amid the infamous trade in stolen Texas livestock. Join author James Bailey Blackshear for an exploration of the cattle drives, cattle rustling, shady government contracts, and bloody frontier justice.
