About this title


'If ever there was a coffee-table book that could exemplify the best of the best, this is it. Wyman Meinzer's photos portray the heart and soul of this historic ranch, but even more important, so do Henry Chappell's words...His sentences drip with vivid imagery, allowing readers to watch a movie in their mind of this west Texas ranch where one's livelihood is still earned, four generations later' - "True West". "The Sixes' - the name alone conjures all the history, romance, and tradition of the West. It's how the West was, and still is, on a 290,000-acre working cattle outfit in Texas...Chappell handily captures the essence of the West Texas cattle outfit and its history...Meinzer's work is eye-candy for those enamored of the ranching lifestyle. This coffee-table volume's a keeper' -"Western Horseman". 'A sumptuous, beautifully written and illustrated volume that tells the story of one of the largest and most famous ranches in the Panhandle...Meinzer's photographs and Chappell's prose enchant the reader' - "Roundup Magazine". '[A] handsome, oversized book featuring lavish photographs...150 pages of stunning pictures ...Meinzer has produced about 15 other books that are credits to his talented eye, but this one may be the most impressive yet' - Glen Dromgoole, "Lubbock Avalanche-Journal".
