The Alamo and Beyond: A Collector’s Journey

When Phil Collins was a kid growing up in a London suburb, he would often watch an amazing show on his family television.  There, in black and white, was Fess Parker as Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier.  As he matured, Collins not only acted out the exploits of his new hero, but he often refought the Battle of the Alamo with his toy soldiers.  Even though music came to dominate his life, it was this love of history–and Davy Crockett and the Alamo in particular–that was always near by. On one musical tour, Collins encountered his first David Crockett autograph–for sale at a store called the Gallery of History.  ”I didn’t know this stuff was out there, that you could own it,” the rock-n-roll legend said.  ”It had never occurred to him. Later, he received a birthday-present that would change his life:  a receipt for a saddle signed by an Alamo defender.  From that point forward, the drummer began building his impressive Alamo and Texas Revolution collection.
 
Here, for the first time in history, are the artifacts, relics, and documents that compose the Phil Collins collection, available in a beautifully designed color book shot-through with stunning photography and crisply rendered illustrations. Collins’s prose takes the reader through the joys of being a collector as he lovingly describes what each piece in this impressive assemblage means to him. Photographer Ben Powell of Austin brought these items to vivid relief, and artist Gary Zaboly’s masterful pen-and-ink drawings breath life into the items. Essays by Texas historians Bruce Winders, Don Frazier, and Stephen Hardin provide the historical background to the collection and help make this into a work of art that also serves handily as a serious research tool.

The link below takes you to a crowd source funding site for Ben Powell’s short documentary, Phil Collins and the Wild Frontier. It captures Phil Collins during the week-long book tour in June 2012.

Cal English Texas Ranger: ‘The Death Dealer’ deals justice the only way he knows with a blazing fourty-four.

Fifteen dead men and eight years have passed swiftly since the time Cal English, ‘The Death Dealer’, left Abilene and now the year is Tuesday June 3, 1879. It was only the day before that he received orders from Major Jones Commander of the Frontier Battalion of the Texas Rangers of his new assignment. Cal was to go to Palo Duro Canyon a few miles from Canyon Texas. There he was to ride into the Canyon and meet up with Lance Arrister the overseer and part owner of the LA Ranch. He would inform Cal on what was happening to the wholesale slaughter of the remaining Buffalo in that area since the Indian wars had ended a few years before. Cal’s mission was to do whatever he could to bring a closure to the killing. If he needed outside help he was to contact Major Jones at once. Cal didn’t figure he’d need no help.
