Synopsis: In 1950, Ann was eighteen and Bob D twenty when he asked her to marry him and hit the road for West Texas. They packed their station wagon, left home and began a life of adventure together on Conoco's West Texas survey crew during the 1950s oil boom. Five kids, twenty-one towns and thirteen years on the road--Bob D and Ann's travels along the highways of West Texas are a portrait in a landscape of oilfields, railroads and ranches. Layering local history with family memoir, author Rebecca D. Henderson reveals a glimpse of mid-century West Texas through her grandparents' adventures as a young couple raising children on the road..

About the Author: Rebecca D. Henderson lives in her native Fort Worth, Texas with her husband and four stepsons. A graduate of Baylor University, she spent ten years living in Yunnan, China, where she worked as an English teacher and translator among other jobs. At every available opportunity, she loves camping, hiking, and exploring new places around the state.
