An American Original: The Life Of J. Frank Dobie

by Lon Tinkle

Publication: Little, Brown and Company, 1978, Boston

First edition. Boards, 264pp., illus., biblio. notes, index. An excellent biography of one of the best-loved storytellers of the American Southwest. Born in 1888, this giant of a man grew up in the bleak South Texas brush country that he would later immortalize in his many books. This volume chronicles his youth, his years at the University of Texas, and his devotion to his beloved subject matter. Light toning to spine and dust jacket edges along with some light general soiling, else fine.
