Synopsis: “Home of the Last Frontier” is how the local radio station aptly describes the Big Bend and Davis Mountains region of West Texas, the sparsely populated area of desert and mountain close to the Mexican border. After 1848, the first settlers started to move in. They came to make a living, and a few made a fortune. Mysterious cattle baron Milton Faver ran 10,000 cattle in the 1870s. Others came for their health, like J.O. Langford, his wife, and young daughters who, seeking a dry climate, came to homestead on the Rio Grande. Today’s newcomers are equally pioneering in their own way. Donald Judd was the catalyst that changed Marfa from a moribund cow town to an internationally recognized art center. Edie Elfring, an immigrant from a small island in the Baltic Sea, has picked up trash and tended Alpine’s public gardens―unasked and unpaid―for years. They were drawn to what their predecessors found: a boundless landscape peopled by a few hardy, independent souls.

About the Author: World traveler, local guidebook author, and newspaper correspondent Jim Glendinning was born in Scotland and came to Alpine 20 years ago. Through his studies and interviews, Legendary Locals of the Big Bend and Davis Mountains shares the stories of local characters and their lives in this rugged frontier land.
