Editorial Reviews

Booknews
First published in 1978 by Shoal Creek Publishers and subsequently by the author's own press, Maverick, in the early 1980s. Erickson, Texas rancher and writer, recounts the 15 days he and photographer Bill Ellzey spent ambling on horseback across the Texas Panhandle, camping and swapping stories with the people of the Canadian River Valley. Rustic b&w photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
From the Publisher

Through Time and the Valley is the finest non-scholarly account of the history, culture, and people of this region. . . . What I did notice was humor, pathos, strong characterization, crisp dialogue, and such a sense of place as to bring a lump to my throat.”—Roundup Magazine

“[T]his is a pleasant journey back in time to a distinct locale in Texas.”—Review of Texas Books

John R. Erickson, born in Midland, Texas, and raised in the Texas Panhandle town of Perryton, is a fifth-generation Texan with ranching roots back to the 1850s. He graduated from the University of Texas and studied at the Harvard Divinity School, but made his living on horseback while pursuing his writing. His Hank the Cowdog series has become a national favorite. He and his wife run their own ranch and commercial beef cattle operation. A member of the Texas Institute of Letters, Erickson has been profiled in Southern Living, American Cowboy Magazine, and on CBS’s Evening News with Dan Rather. He is the author of seven books in UNT Press’s Western Life Series.
