Patrick Dearen went in search for buried treasures, not for gold or silver or jewels, but for untapped tales worthy of J. Frank Dobie. And he found for Lone Star Lost nine such stories that spring from the bedrock, shared with the author by native sons and daughters who know that the real treasure is our Texas heritage. These stories grew from the land—the Texas soil that gives birth to history and sprinkles it with legend. From the piney woods in the east to the Chihuahuan Desert in the west, from the subtropical marshes in the south to the inverted mountains in the north, Texas is alive with the kind of wonder that has sent men in quest of their own Cibolas for generations.
