"When young Kirvin Kade Legett arrived in Buffalo Gap, Texas, in 1879, his principal assets were a good horse and saddle and a license to practice law. When the Texas and Pacific Railroad..missed Buffalo Gap, the young attorney moved on to Abilene, then a tent city with only two items for sale,, 'a train ticket to git away or a drink to may you willing to stay.' The man and the country were to grow up together..By the time of Legett's death, that rowdy railroad town had become a thriving, modern city." -from the dust jacket.
