Summary
"Late Texas folklorist and historian Lawrence Clayton found beauty where many might see only mesquite and limestone; he found humor in unlikely places, and he found nobility in the hard lives of cowboys and roughnecks. For years, Dr. Clayton chronicled the history of the Clear Fork Country--the stretch of land cut by the Clear Fork of the Brazos River--of Shackleford and Throckmorton counties. His thoughtful prose on the region's colorful past and its equally colorful characters has appeared in dozens of publications over the years. His efforts to record the stories of area ranches and the men who built them and worked them represent a major contribution to the state's recorded history."--P. [4] of cover
