Summary
The isolated Canadian River in the Texas Panhandle stretched before John Erickson and Bill Ellzey as they began a journey through time and what the locals call "the valley." They went on horseback, as they might have traveled it a century before. Everywhere they went they talked, worked, and swapped stories with the people of the valley, piecing together a picture of what life has been like there for a hundred years. Through Time and the Valley is their story of the riverits history, its lore, its colorful characters, the comedies and tragedies that valley people have spun yarns about for generations. Rancher Erickson is an insider who knows his territory and has the gifts to tell about it. A wry and delightful humorist, he tickles our funnybone while touching our feelings. Outlaws, frontier wives, Indian warriors, cowboys, craftsmen, dance-hall girls, moonshiners, inventors, big ranchers, small ranchers--all are part of the Canadian River country heritage that gives this book its vitality and color and its powerful sense of place. Author Erickson weaves their tales in among his own, as he struggles with a recalcitrant mule and hits the dust in a bout with a "bucking barrel." Thirty-five pictures by award-winning photographer Ellzey record Erickson's scrapes as well as sensitively capturing the look of the valley and its people -- Book jacket
