MARFA & PRESIDIO COUNTY TEXAS
In their quest to complete their study and to share a better knowledge and understanding of a part of Texas that is still somewhat a frontier, authors Louise S. O’Connor and Cecilia Thompson reveal the first volume of their book “Marfa and Presidio County, Texas: A Social, Economic, and Cultural Study 1937 to 2008. Volume One, 1937–1989.
A case study worth reading, this book is an eye-opener for a better understanding of how this small yet historically rich land is what it is now.
Volume Two continues this study of a unique culture. The story will be picked up in 1990 which begins an era of change quite different from its earlier history. From the late twentieth century to the present we will see a frontier come into the modern world.
