Breaking News, Info & Great Commentary

We’re over here at Opa’s German store in New Braunfels, Texas ... ground zero for the Central Texas cowboys featured in our book. One of the Wurstfest Opas just purchased a copy because he found McDonald Ranch listed in the index. Here's what W.B. Foster of San Antonio writes on p. 330: “We crossed the Washita River where the McDonald Ranch is now and crossed the Canadian River at Billie Williams’ store. That night Col. Todd and I fell out and I quit. He talked a long time to me before I would agree to stay with the outfit until he got out of Indian country.”
