Summary
Many historians have noted the extraordinary speed with which the western prairies of Texas changed from the wild frontier of the buffalo to the docile rangeland of the Hereford. Today in West Texas we are trying to preserve and mark as historically important the structures they built and then abandoned as nomadic inclinations moved them elsewhere. In need of equal attention is careful research of the life histories of the men and women who lived in the era. Newton Givens, whose story is recorded in this book, was a prototype of the breed, and the author has chosen a worthy protagonist for this work
