Life on the King Ranch was an interesting account of Frank Goodwyn's experiences growing up on the famous King ranch. It was an enjoyable history lesson, full of great characters and their stories. Describing in detail the day to day life on a working ranch in an era almost forgotten, Frank Goodwyn captures the reader's imagination making it hard to put this book down.
