Texas Oil, American Dreams: A Study of the Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association


A resource for teachers, this book explores the legend of the Texas wildcatter, the twentieth century’s version of Thomas Jefferson’s yeoman farmer and the nineteenth century’s plains-riding cowboy. Goodwyn brings into clear relief the people who endeavored to act out the American Dream in the remote corners of oil country.
