Publication: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1966, New York
First edition. Inked gift inscription on front free fly leaf, else a fine bright copy in a fine dust jacket Texan Tom Pendleton, a pseudonym, describes himself merely as "an old roustabout type who has retired from the oil patch to write about it." Story of how roustabouts live in the Texas oil fields. It is a vibrant, brutal story of the men who labored, sweated, lusted and gambled their money and spirits to get oil. Basis for the 2018 movie of the same name. An exceptional copy.
