I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this. It is a long narrative of an incredible event in our history. I am a Am. Hstory fan and I never knew this story. The book develops a great Progressive story of our development of our Forestry Service and of the tragic fire in our Northwest, that solidified its existence.
I'm a Yankee that attended college in Texas in the late '70's and I experienced the last oil boom in Texas. This book starts at the beginning of the Texas oil boom and takes it past my time in TX to almost the present. I have read a lot of books on the Texas oil families and am a great fan of the people that developed Texas. This details each of the great oil families and it follows the oil finds and the great oil families from the beginning to the present. This is a GREAT listen and an amazing story of an amazing place and time in our history.
