AND TOOL PUSHERS
Thirty-three Years in the Oil Fields
By Gerald Lynch
Introduction by Bobby Weaver
Here is a much-needed insider's view of the oil industry
by a retired oil driller who spent a third of a century in oil
fields in and around Texas. The book chronicles changes
in drilling methods and oil-field technology and how
these changes affected oil-field workers. Colorful and ar-
ticulate, this is a working-class history of the oil fields that
gave rise to many a Texas myth. $16.95 hardcover
THE ELUSIVE EDEN
Frank McMullan's Confederate Colony
By William Clark Grggs
The Elusive Eden chronicles the settlement after the Civil
War of a large land grant in Brazil by a group of deter-
mined southerners led by Texans Frank McMullan and
William Bowen. Though the Cofederate colony eventually
failed, it left a lasting mark on Brazilian culture by intro-
ducing the mouldboard plow and establishing the first
permanent Baptist church in Brazil. This important study
draws on a vast body of unpublished documentary
material. $25.00 hardcover $9.95 paperback
