Summary
"Meet Henrietta King, the strong woman who ran the most legendary ranch in America. From her beginnings as a preacher's daughter on a houseboat to her role as La Patrona of the legendary King Ranch, Henrietta King defined herself through strength of character. Here is the story of the remarkable woman whose tenacity, fortitude and faith in the face of the Civil War and her husband's death guided the ranch that developed the first cattle breed in the United States, bred the Triple Crown winner, Assault, and continues to exemplify the Texas mystique today."--p. [4] of cover
