Bold and mysterious, the Montana cowboy, Douglas McGarret, drove into the Paluxy River Valley without knowing the dangers facing him. Caught up in a vicious web, he cast aside all previous training to become a part of the Texas hill people. Was his love for Nelda Jean McCoy great enough to cause him to kill a traitorous Texas Ranger? Hidden deep within their minds, the people of Glen Rose, Texas still talk about who killed one of their own who turned traitor. Read Mysterious Valley to determine if it was the Montana Man who pulled the shotgun trigger. This book catches the clear waters of the Paluxy River at their best. Taste the limestone water and learn about the secret trade that made Glen Rose the target of Ma Ferguson and the Texas Rangers! Author's comments. In 1985, I took a course on Folklore taught by Dr. Sue McGinity at Tarleton State University. One of my projects was to interview people who had been involved in the moonshining business at Glen Rose, Texas in the roaring '20s. The story of the Glen Rose resident who shot the Texas Ranger kept being mentioned. From this folklore, I came up with The Mysterious Valley. Glen Rose is now a tourist Mecca, so if you come to Texas, be sure to visit this beautiful city in the Texas hills.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
