HOME RANGE: Notes on Literature, Nature, Working Dogs, History, Martial Arts, Other Obsessions and Sundry Annoyances by Henry Chappell

Houston


Great event last night featuring Horses to Ride Cattle to Cut. Wonderful crowd. Signed a bunch of books. Wyman strategically positioned himself so that I would have to write all the personal notes. Payback time. I did the same to him at the last signing. Our thanks to the the East Foundation, TWA, and our great hosts at the Houston Country Club. We finished the evening with Brandy Freezes. I'm afraid I could be a 400-pound lush.

Wyman Meinzer and I had a fine time signing copies of Horses to Ride, Cattle to Cut: The San Antonio Viejo Ranch of Texas last Wednesday in Hebbronville. Our thanks to Charlotte Hellen and the Museum Foundation of Hebbronville for hosting us and to the people of South Texas for their remarkable support of our work. I love the Wild Horse Desert.

Talk and Signing at Texas A&M

Nervous BSing as the auditorium filled up behind us. We didn't dare look back. After my short introduction to San Antonio Viejo and our book, Wyman blew everybody away with his photo presentation.

Wyman and I enjoyed a great talk and signing with a packed house at the George Bush Presidental Library and Museum at Texas A&M on Tuesday night. Boy, do those Aggies buy books. My thanks to the Museum and Library staff for hosting a wonderful event and to East Foundation CEO Neal Wilkins for setting things in motion.
