The stories in this book chronicle some of the misadventures of my long-time friend, Frank, a rancher on the dry plains of North Texas. Frank is one of the most intelligent people of my acquaintance, but he is also one of the most gently outrageous characters I’ve had the privilege of knowing.
I would tend to doubt Frank’s veracity about these stories except that I’ve been involved in some of these misadventures, myself. I have attempted to imbue these stories with some of the same insouciant tall-taledness with which Frank presented them to me. I hope you find pleasure in both these genuine Texas stories and the illustrations of them by Gary Miller, a great comic cartoonist.Frank, Short, Rancher, Chronicles, Tall, Texas
