  • Remarkable Vashie on July 26, 2013
    (no rating)
    Excellent book! Travel with Vashie from Red River County, Texas to San Angelo and on to Girvin, Fort Stockton, Hobbs New Mexico and on. The author has a way of describing life at the beginning of the twentieth century that is both accurate and heartfelt. It is a family history and much more. I loved this book and so will you.
