Rick Steed and his driving companion, Wendi Pierce, set off with one goal in mind: to travel Texas's old fort trails and scout today's remnants of the bloody skirmishes and battles of long ago. Historic Road Trips from Dallas/Fort Worth provides not only a road map of day trips throughout Texas but also a narrative history of the tiny towns, historic markers and frontier excitement along the way. After collecting these stories for years, Steed teamed up with Pierce to bring to life this fascinating guidebook for anyone who yearns to venture off the main road and discover old Texas. Each drive begins in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and travels a different route through the state. Travel along and discover the site of Buffalo Hump's revenge raid or Cynthia Ann Parker's harrowing pioneer experiences, as well as other local lore, including the haunting of Jefferson, Texas's Jefferson Hotel, the notorious New London school accident and much, much more.
