Steeped in historical drama and the long-forgotten tradition of family history, this collection of three small books, written by members of the Reynolds-Matthews ranching families of early West Texas, were originally written decades ago in the form of privately printed pamphlets that were illustrated with old family photographs. Reminiscences tells of a childhood on the frontier, of ranching before fences, and of the simple joys of nature and family. Summers at Lambshead by John Burns provides a candid look at the outsized personality of the author's grandfather, John Alexander Matthews. Uncle Bennie's Limb is at the same time an American genealogy dating back to several generations before the founding of the Jamestown colony, a delightful memoir of three generations of West Texans, and an indelible portrait of a small-town American childhood in the early twentieth century.
