"The origins of the system of open-range cattle ranching that dominated the Great Plains in the late nineteenth century have long been the subject of controversy..however, there is common agreement on one point: nineteenth-century Texas was the proving ground, the setting in which the crucial stages of development took place..through southern settlers, white and black alike..bringing with them a heritage that reached back to colonial South Carolina." -from the dust jacket.
