The Lords of the Valley: Including the Complete Text of ""Our Sheltered Lives""

Laverne Hanners, Author, Ed Lord, With University of Oklahoma Press $24.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8061-2804-7
In 1965, at the age of 80, Ed Lord wrote a memoir for his family and friends recounting life in the Dry Cimarron Valley on the Oklahoma-New Mexico border. He gives us a vivid picture of a working cowboy at the turn of the century who later hauled freight, ran a lumberyard and kept a general store in the town of Kenton. Manners, who came to Kenton as a child and knew Lord for a few years, has retraced his footsteps, interviewed the remaining old-timers and drawn on her own memories to provide a nostalgic counterpoint to Lord's story. The two accounts make a memorable contribution to southwestern Americana and will be of immense local interest. Photos. (Mar.)
