Reese, Six Score 53: "Best biography of a cowman ever written. Goodnight's career spanned the history of the development of West Texas, from Indian fighting to oil wells. Goodnight, while not the largest cattleman in Texas, was undoubtedly the most important.... Haley's beautifully written biography, perhaps his best book, is an ample vehicle for a mighty figure, and is a classic of American biography."
Condition: Soiling and moderate shelf wear to boards; spine toned; toning to the preliminary and terminal pages; original jacket shelf worn, else about very good condition.
