YOU CAN ALMOST SMELL .... Bison deli dogs, Dry Aged bison burgers, and the corn bison brisket - (like corned beef, but bison and better). We are stocked and waiting for you as the "Bash" is getting closer! Need antique store displays, store decor or some of our Herd Wear signage? ... it all has to go and I am motivated to listen to offers. Still looking for ticket/donations - $50 - that gets you the same "swag bag and goodies" ... lunchtime dogs, corned brisket, burgers etc. See you in Goodnight, Texas .... one last time.
Yes, folks ... BIG NEWS. The Texas Historical Commission has bought the store in Goodnight. We will be there through the end of July, 2024 ... and then on line or by phone. No; we are not "quitting" - HERD WEAR will continue. Be sure you are on our email list and also on Buffalo Wool Co's list.

BOOKS - A History of the JA Ranch (Reprint)

$24.50
Style

By Harley True Burton

This is a reprint from the original 1934 article published in the Texas Historical Quarterly ... and just fascinating.  Ledgers with income, animal count, workers ... the whole of the ranch Goodnight founded for and with John Adair; at one time 361 square miles of contiguous canyon, creeks, grazing ... and historical territory.

We have just recently had the newer spiral bound re-printed .. and got a much better price for the same material (actually easier to read and flip pages!!)

I loved this book, and the fabulous history surrounding it

I have enjoyed a deeper dive into the JA Ranch and Charles Goodnight. I think Herd Wear an amazing source for our amazing Panhandle history especially in our Ranching heritage and all the culture around Palo Duro Canyon.
