The J A ranch was the oldest ranch in the Texas Panhandle, founded by Charles Goodnight and John Adair. Burton does an admirable job of chronicling the ranch's history through the early part of the 20th Century. Though Burton's book has been reprinted, first editions rarely find their way to market.
