Mrs. Lewis explains in the preface
that the book began as a desire to
preserve for her children a perma
nent record of their father’s early life
on the Panhandle Plains.
“As my interest and understand
ing of the subject increased, I came
to realize that the story of my hus
band and the story of the region were
closely related, and that, for the sake
of coherence, his story should be
preceded by the story of the land
that produced him,” she said.
Mrs. Lewis, who was reared in
Dallas, went to the High Plains with
her rancher-husband as a bride in
The frontier had passed by then,
but she knew many of the oldtimers
and observed firsthand what re
mained of an earlier way of life. Her
account of the civilizing of the region
is based largely on personal inter
views and correspondence with
some 50 of the men and women who
made it happen.

The police take the cats and other
domestic animals to veterinarian
Sam P. Scainardo. The animals are

School where they are held for a
week. The animals are then usedfor
research. Racoons, opossums, and

There are three traps available to
citizens. If a citizen does not know
