Wes Hendricks begins a one-man war against his family, friends, and the harsh realities of time to hold on to the land he loves
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This warmly human story about a generation gap that closes is set in west Texas of the 1980s where the old and new ways are in serious conflict. Wes Hendricks is an old-time rancher who loves his land and animals and refuses to sell out to make way for progress in the shape of an artificial lake that will flood his home. His grandson, Jim Ed, sent to convince him to sell, gradually becomes a supporter of his grandfather. The old ways of Wes and the new ways of Jim Ed and Glory Be (neighbor and romantic element) are joined and all ends well. Very pleasant reading by a much-praised Texas author.
