Cattle Kings of Texas

Cattle Kings of Texas

by Dian Leatherberry Malouf

Editorial Reviews

The author interviewed and photographed cattle ranchers--most of whom were raising cattle on land that had been in their families for six generations. In this 12.5x9.5" presentation, her b&w photos lose whatever interest they might have held--showing up flat and muddy on paper that affords no resolution; the narrative and interviews will engage only the most determined (Texan) readers. The publisher replies to the April R&R review which criticized the choice of paper stock: We appreciated your recent review of Cattle Kings of Texas. This book was printed in the United States on a newly developed, textured, recycled paper. The photographic images will appear warmer and softer than a glossy white, non-recycled paper. Because the text ranch country is dusty and monotone in color, we chose a light grey paper stock to reflect the natural qualities of this region. . . . As a young press with concern and respect for our environment, it is our hope that reviewers and readers alike will encourage and support the publishing of books using recycled paper and soy based inks.
