    LOST CAUSE: The True Story of Famed Texas Gunslinger John Wesley Hardin by Jack Jackson (a.k.a. Jaxon).

    After a ten year absence, author/artist/historian Jackson returns with another bloody, moving and all-true tale spanning forty years of post-Civil War Texas history. He takes on the legend of John Wesley Hardin, a controversial gunfighter reputed to have killed twenty-three men (including carpetbaggers, Federal soldiers and Indians). Hardin was a frontier hero to some and a dark villain and rascist to others. The Hardin saga continues to grow in our own times, from the famous early album of the same name by folksinger Bob Dylan to the fierce legal battles over Hardin's body between two Texas towns at the time of this graphic novel's publication by Kitchen Sink Press in 1998 (each town essentially vying over a tourist attraction). Lost Cause runs 154 pages, including a preface and end notes on historical sources. Jackson is the author three earlier graphic novels on Texas history: Commanche Moon (the story of half-breed chief Quanah Parker from the Commanche perspective); Los Tejanos (the story of Juan Seguin from the Mexican perspective) and The Secret of San Saba (a semi-fictional account of power, lost treasure and greed during the Spanish control of Texas). Jackson at present is working on a book about the Alamo. This out-of-print softcover is in near mint condition. $20.00

    "In Lost Cause, Jack Jackson has found a bold and vivid new way to tell an old story ---the story of John Wesley Hardin." ---Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dove.

    "My telling of the Reconstruction Period [in Lost Cause] is not 'politically correct.' I believe that there is no point in trying to explain this era if you're not going to do it truthfully, with all its racism, violence, and other dark aspects that are repugnant to modern social theorists and every ethnic group involved." ---Jack Jackson
