Lonn Taylor’s History Program
The Rambling Boy: Stories About Texas is a weekly look at regional history, hosted by Lonn Taylor of Fort Davis.
Taylor is a writer and historian who moved to the Big Bend after retiring from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. in 2002.
The show is broadcast Friday mornings after the 11 AM newscast.
Fences line ranches across the State of Texas. You might not intuit it from a casual drive down the road, but there’s actually a pretty complex — and in some cases, murky — legal history behind these ubiquitous fixtures of Texas highways.
On today’s episode of the Rambling Boy, Lonn tells us about Five Strands: A Landowner’s Guide to Fence Law in Texas — a new 30-page booklet published by Texas A&M’s Agrilife Extension Service.
