Our next book is Tom Lea's "The Wonderful Country," published in 1952. This book comes highly recommended from Byron Price, Director of Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West at the University of Oklahoma and Director of the University of Oklahoma Press.
"The Wonderful Country is marvelous in its depiction of life along the Texas/Mexico border of a century-and-a-half ago. Lea brings to life a time that was wild, a time when Texas and Mexico were being settled and tamed. Lea knows the desert region of his birth as well as anyone who has ever written about El Paso and the great nation that borders it to the south." –TCU Press
