Inviting the reader to a personal glimpse of life on this much-storied ranch, this intimate and compelling book chronicles not only the history of the ranch, but also the life of Bob and Helen Kleberg, the first family of cattle ranching. From the development of the Santa Gertrudis cattle breed, first breed developed in America and the first breed recognised world-wide in over a century, to the Triple Crown winning thoroughbred Assault, Bob and Helen Kleberg changed the face of the ranching industry.The memoirs open the door to the romance of the Southwest cattle ranching as well as the grit, the glory, the triumphs, and the heartbreaks of the inner-workings of King Ranch in Texas and its ranches around the world. Presented with 200 never-before-released photographs, this extraordinarily and lavishly illustrated portrait includes accounts of the famous hospitality of the Klebergs, extended not only to the celebrities and dignitaries who were entertained regularly, but to the kinenos, the loyal ranch hands first brought to King Ranch by Captain King.
