TCU Press has issued Elmer Kelton's novel, Honor at Daybreak, with an
afterword by Joyce Gibson Roach.
Blackie Sherrod is one of the state's best sportswriters, having worked
at the Fort Worth Press, the Dallas Times Herald, and finally the Dallas
Morning News, where he trained generations of young writers and enter-
tained countless newspaper readers throughout his more than fifty-year
career. His recent retirement is marked by the publication of a new col-
lection of his last columns. Blackie Sherrod at Large (Eakin Press, $24.95)
shows the progression of his columns from the sports page to the editor-
ial page. The collection includes writings on such diverse topics as the
Kennedy assassination, the moon landing, and September 1 1.
Jane Pattie of Aledo has been studying the art of spur-making for a long
time. Her Cowboy Spurs and Their Makers (Texas A&M University Press,
1991), is something of a classic in the field, and now she has collaborated
with Tom Kelly, cousin of spur-maker Ted Blanchard, to produce Cowboy
Spur Maker: The Story of Ed Blanchard (Texas A&M University Press,
$24-95), the story of a master spur-maker from New Mexico. According to
Kelly, Blanchard was first and foremost a cowboy, but his years spent herd-
ing cattle and riding mean and crazy horses enabled him to learn his
trade as a spur maker. Pattie draws on personal interviews as well as exten-
sive research to tell the story of a man whose spurs are as likely to be
found in museums now as on the heels of a well-dressed cowboy.
