The Kings of Big Spring
God, Oil, and One Family's Search for the American DreamBook - 2018
In 1892, Bryan Mealers great-grandfather leaves the Georgia mountains and heads west into Texas, looking for wealth and adventure in the raw and open country. But his luck soon runs out. Beset by drought, the family loses their farm just as the dead pastures around them give way to one of the biggest oil booms in American history.
