Book Description HTML

The story of Texas' petroleum industry is one of unconventional characters, unconventional events and unconventional technology. For example, if early drillers had followed conventional geological wisdom, they never would have drilled into the salt domes of East Texas. But the driller's hunch won out over the science of the day, and the result was Spindletop, Texas' first gusher. The Texas Alliance of Energy Producers has commissioned HPN Books to produce Texas Petroleum: The Unconventional History, to recount the amazing history of the production of oil and gas in Texas. Legendary Texas author and historian, Mike Cox, was selected to tell the story in his trademark style of humor and solid historical research.
