A fabulous saga of the making of an oil town and the people who create it post world war I. I really enjoyed the characters, the family drama, the way the history of Texas and the great oil families was woven into the story. The 2 main characters are flawed, annoying and surprisingly human. What I did not enjoy was that you could definitely tell the book was written by a man. The women were a bit more seduced by lust than in the 'real' world.

A sweeping Texas saga when incredible fortunes awaited the strong and ruthless.

Just back from World War I, Sam Sheridan is a bit bewildered by his cool reception in the dusty town of Dane, Tex., when he arrives with his pregnant wife, Georgia, a beat-up car and a letter informing him that a man he never met has left him 100 acres of land. The estate lawyer offers Sam several thousand dollars to part with his legacy, but refuses to answer any questions. Local merchants shun Sam, stating only that Pete Spence, the richest man in town, wants him out.
