MARK GREATHOUSE. Nicholas Dunn: The Making of a Texas Legend. Defiance Press. Paperback, eBook, 290 Pages, $16.95, $14.99, defiancepress.com

It’s 1850.  A stocky, red-haired Irish teen steps onto the docks of Corpus Christi, Texas with two of his uncles.  Escaping the famine of County Kildare, Ireland, he brought with him a plow and a spirit of adventure.  Over the next 62 years, Nicholas Dunn would carve a new life from the unforgiving South Texas frontier.  This is a biography of the author’s great-great grandfather: Comanche fighter, drover, rancher, and man of faith and family.
