The Jackson Speed Memoirs

cropped-jackson-speed-books-updated.jpgHistory remembers Jackson Speed as a hero of the Mexican-American War, a Medal of Honor Winner at Gettysburg, a Texas Ranger and a Forty-Niner, but in his recently discovered memoirs, readers get a new look at one of 19th Century America’s greatest adventurers. In truth, Ol’ Speedy was a rogue, a scoundrel, a rascal, and the only things that motivated him were saving his own neck and getting his lusty hands on whatever women were unfortunate enough to cross his path. The first three books in the series are available at Amazon.com. In this series of novels from author Robert Peecher, readers are treated to picaresque romps through some of America’s defining moments of the 1800s. As one reader said, “The history is true and the fiction is fun!” If you love history and love a bawdy tale about a scoundrel trying to save his own neck, you’ll love Jackson Speed.

He has collected some of these columns into a volume titled “Four Things My Wife Hates About Mornings & Other Collected Stories.” This volume takes up those years when his oldest son was in middle school and his two younger sons were still (mostly) wonderful, (mostly) lovable and (mostly) fun-loving. These are the stories you love to read because they make you feel better about your own family.
