42) Texas Jack


Pioneer of the modern depiction of cowboys, Texas Jack would have likely been one of the most famous cowboys in history if he didn't die as early as 33. However, his is influence and legacy still lived long past him. I spoke with Matthew Kerns about the legacy of Texas Jack and his fame. After years of researching, writing, rewriting, and editing, Matthew finally finished his #3 ranked Amazon's Western US History New Releases book; Texas Jack: America's First Cowboy Star.
