Companion to Andy Wilkinson's hit show! CD included.
Andy Wilkinson introduces more about the legendary Charlie Goodnight, who became a scout for the Texas Rangers, helped blaze the famous Goodnight-Loving Trail, and invented the chuckwagon among other acts of a successful life well-lived on the frontier of the American West. "His was a life forged in the nexus of sweeping changes, fed by a practical intelligence and an obstinate curiosity, shaped by a fierce and unconfused morality.
The book and its writings of poetry and lyrics are inspired, sure to give insight into Charlie Goodnight and his family (author Wilkinson is related in that his "great-grand mother's great-uncle" was Goodnight), and the love and admiration this man engendered is obvious. The CD includes:
