How Indian Emily Saved Fort Davis

ByLarry Francell

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Legends, myths, and ghost stories have long roamed the rugged West Texas towns - and one legend has intrigued story-tellers and researchers for generations. The Forts across Texas hold a powerful history and each have their own stories and mythologies, and Fort Davis, Texas is no exception. The legend of Indian Emily is a story that has been told throughout the Davis Mountains and around campfires for years. West Texas author Larry Francell digs into the legend of Indian Emily in this new journalistic critique. Covering stories and histories gathered over the past century, Larry asks, and tries to answer, questions about the young woman known as Indian Emily. Did she really save the soldiers at Fort Davis? Where was she buried? How was she portrayed in different stories over the years?
