Hallie Stillwell was an amazing woman. I had the pleausure to meet her and her son Guy at the Stillwell Ranch in the early 1990's. She wrote like she talked and her stories are were amazing. She could find the positive in even the hardest of circumstances.

In 1916, Hallie Crawford went to teach school in Presidio, TX just across the Rio Grande from Ojinaga, Mexico. Her father said she was going on a wild goose chase. "Then I'll gather my geese." she told him. Her remarkable story takes you through the good and bad times of living in the Texas Big Bend area. A wonderful book about an amazing lady.




































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































In 1916, Hallie Crawford went to teach school in Presidio, just across the Rio Grande from Ojinaga, Mexico. Her father said she was going on a wild good chase. "Then I'll gather my geese", she told him. Her remarkable story covers her marriage and the operation of a ranch in the Big Bend Area of Texas, surviving two world wars, the depression. droughts an influenza epidemic, as well as the everyday troubles of running a home and a ranch. The story is old in a personal and engaging way and is fascinating reading for anyone interested in pioneering ranching in Texas.
