It began with dispossessed farmers and nomadic cattle herders from as far away as Scotland, Nova Scotia and Africa. Legacy of the Early Gulf Coast Cowboys blends historical research into the origins of these men and women, with personal anecdotes and stories from their descendants to create a very readable tale.

The reason Bizet's Carmen is one of the most performed operas is because it deals with human emotions - love, betrayal, duty and honor, and s little bit of lust.
