Synopsis: Fountain Goodlet Oxsheer—like "Slaughter" or "Goodnight"—was an unusual and appealing name for one of Texas' most dynamic cattle ranchers. Once the baron of an intricate network of ranches that stretched from Oklahoma and the Texas Staked Plains down to northern Mexico, Oxsheer prospered, endured, and sought to run his empire and live by his own code of ethics. But the great ranching era ended, and twentieth-century phenomena such as world war and materialistic lifestyles joined the Dust Bowl tempest to obscure his renown and obliterate his fortune.

The forgotten cattle king is brought to life in this vivid narrative, made possible by the discovery of voluminous family memorabilia carefully preserved by one of Oxsheer's descendants and now held by the Oxsheer family of Fort Worth.

This very American epic of the forgotten cattle king is an eloquent example of how an independent spirit, sacrifice, and labor made a harsh wilderness into a cherished home for generations of Texans.
