Dr. Lindley J. Stiles, Hall of Fame Educator, Author, Poet and Lecturer, was born on a cattle ranch near where Tatum, New Mexico now stands. His World Class professional career was anchored in his boyhood experiences with real cowboys and Indians on his father's ranches on the Caprock, near Grants and Pueblo Bonito and on the West Gallegos.

He Co-authored, "Half a Man," with Simmie Plummer, who has designed all his Western books. his very popular book "Eagle Song" will soon be in its second edition. His professional autobiography was written to accompany the "Stiles Career Shelf" in the archives of the Deering Library of Northwestern University from which he is Professor Ameritus. Classroom Cowboy: Out to Pasture, is an addendum which deals with his on-going career activities.
