Overview

History is people. So often history is a record of battles, events, battle heroes, with many dates to remember. This book of stories with authentic historical settings and events places the emphasis on the people and the way they lived. Around 1900 the great grey wolf, or lobo, was hunted almost to extinction in Texas. Because they killed so many cattle, the ranchers hired men to crawl into their dins and kill mothers and cubs. Moving to the high plains was traumatic for women and children, but they made homes and helped build towns where nothing was before. Taking a trip of more than a thousand miles before roads were paved, in a Model T Ford, was a wonderous adventure. Ground squirrels, roadrunners, toads, were once numerous in the wild, but are rarely seen now. All of these people and things make the study of history a real adventure and fun reading.
