John Cypher spent 40 years (l948-1988) on the King Ranch, most of the time as assistant to the president, Bob Kleberg. This book combines a biography of Kleberg with the story of the postwar boom years that changed the King Ranch from a Mexican hacienda into a traditional South Texas cattle ranch and finally into an international corporate agribusiness. - from praise by Houston Chronicle.
