I am putting all of this documentation together
and presenting it on the web for several reasons

The Big Country
The area of Texas where I grew up is
known as the Staked Plains and is also known to
the locals as "The Big Country". That is a

I tell stories here about some of
the people I knew when I was a boy growing up in
Rotan, Fisher County, Texas. As far as I know - most
of these people are deceased now. In no way do I
intend to disrespect them by telling these stories.
