"For more than a hundred years the vigorous Matthews and Reynolds clans have graced the land and enhanced the genteel traditions of western living. I know no writer who could hold the subject in more affectionate regard than the imaginative author of this book, Frances Holden. It is a beautiful book."—J. Evetts Haley.

Along the Clear Fork of the Brazos in northwest Texas lies the Lambshead range--good water, protected valleys, and rich grasses, a cowman's dream. The story of the Reynolds and Matthews families, who made that dream a reality, has been beautifully chronicled in Sallie Reynolds Matthews's classic, Interwoven. Now, in Lambshead Before Interwoven, Frances Holden tells of earlier events in the area and recounts some fascinating episodes omitted from Interwoven.

Based on a wealth of sources, including family documents and numerous interviews, Frances Holden's lively narrative adds an invaluable chapter to both the Lambshead story and Texas range history.
