You will find twenty-six stories in this book of almost one hundred human characters. In one sitting you will fondly embrace one story’s characters, setting, problem(s) and solution(s). You might find yourself liking some stories and disliking others. But by reading this book you will know something about the Concho Valley and the nation as a whole—in the late 1800s.
During that time period, West Texas was becoming urbanized. Therefore many of this book’s stories depict pleasures and struggles in and near the town of San Angela—called San Angelo, beginning in 1884.
The author diligently tries to depict the times—its customs, social arrangements, physical geography, towns and politics—in a relevant manner. Enjoy the fictional literature!
The author also collects photos of the region and its historical settings. She loves to cut and paste these snapshots of time—into original creations—which she then traces. A traced sketch is assigned to each story. Enjoy the traced sketches!
