Limited edition (225 copies in the special binding by Booklab), second and enlarged edition of preceding. Pingenot: Richardsons scholarly work is considered a classic on the subject of advancing the south plains frontier against Comanche Indian resistance. This printing contains over ten thousand words of text that the editors deleted from the original edition. Due to the small number of copies printed, its press book format, and restored text, this edition is destined to appreciate as much as the first edition.
