This title contains 3 books in slipcase. Steeped in historical drama and the long-forgotten tradition of family history, this collection of three small books, written by members of the Reynolds-Matthews ranching families of early West Texas, were originally written decades ago in the form of privately printed pamphlets that were illustrated with old family photographs. "Reminiscences" tells of a childhood on the frontier, of ranching before fences, and of the simple joys of nature and family. For this edition, chronologies have been added for the Matthews family, the Reynolds family, and the combined families who were 'interwoven' by several marriages between the two. "Summers at Lambshead" by John Burns provides a candid look at the outsized personality of the author's grandfather, John Alexander Matthews. "Uncle Bennie's Limb" is at the same time an American genealogy dating back to several generations before the founding of the Jamestown colony, a delightful memoir of three generations of West Texans, and an indelible portrait of a small-town American childhood in the early 20th century.
John Burns has worked for the U.S. State Department for most of his life. Glenn Reynolds is a successful business man. Ethel Matthews Casey passed away in 1985 at age 97.
