Murder In Jackson Hole While I was researching the fourth in my Jackson Hole Mysteries series, which is about horse stealing in the 19th century and present-day quarter horse racing, I needed a back story. I decided to give a main character a family history that went back to the early King ranch and was lucky enough to find this book. It proved to be perfect for my designs but, more than that, gave me some very enjoyable hours reading it for its merits as both a history and a rousing tale of a man who got off a boat broke and built an empire. Buy it.

More than interesting to see how one strain of horses developed. Robert Denhardt's book is as much a textbook as a simple read. I wanted a copy to put on the shelf.

Now I know where the King Ranch received its reputation for developing good cow horses.

I live but 45 miles South of Norias, Texas.

The King Ranch Quarter Horses was a unique look into the history of the King Ranch and the people who made it great. A wonderful reference for people interested in King Ranch quarter horses and cattle. Factual but entertaining with great photos!

Extensive history of the King Ranch Quarter Horses. A must have for those interested in Quarter Horse history. I have read it a couple of times, and refer to it often.

I found this book to be very interesting and informative, if a bit dry in areas. It was a wonderful insight to the people who help to shape the Quarter Horse world.
