Description

This is a history of early day ranching in Southwestern Texas. E.K. Fawcett, a seventeen year old orphan lad left his siblings when hired to assist in herding a flock of 3,000 sheep across early day Texas. They arrived at their destination on the Devil's River at 12:00 midnight July 24th 1883. He met and courted the love of his life by horseback from twenty some odd miles away. It is a story of love and devotion not only for each other and family, but the land as well. It tells of his accomplishments throughout his life as father, ranchman, Justice of the Peace, County Commissioner, Hide and Brand Inspector, as well as president of various county and state civic organizations. She was the rock steady force that kept it all in perspective at home, by raising six children, cooking, washing, doctoring, milking her cows, feeding her chickens, and just plain being Momma! This grandson felt this book should be written so others could know of their multitudes of accomplishments. It tells of the trials and tribulations, as well as its rewards, for the hard work they put forth.
