Summary
"Looking back on the West Texas he grew up in, Greene evokes with both humor and strong affection its people, its places, and its history. There is the country itself, harsh and grudging, which shaped in "those who stayed" an independence that can border on eccentricity. There is the closeness of its history, for a boy might have talked with the driver of a stage whose track the man can only walk today. There is the way of life tied to the land, the weather, and what with a little luck could be eked from the two. And there are the author's own memories"--Publisher description
