About the Book

Oil, the black gold of Texas, has given rise to many a myth. Oil could turn a man overnight into a millionaire--and did, for some. But these myths have obscured what life was really like in the oil patch, a place that was neither the El Dorado of legend nor quite the unredeemed den of sin and iniquity that some feared.

In Roughnecks, Drillers, and Tool Pushers, Gerald Lynch provides a much-needed insider's view of the oil industry, describing life in various oil fields in and around Texas. He also chronicles changes in drilling methods and oil-field technology and how these changes affected him and his fellow oil-field workers. No one else has written a working-class history of the oil fields as colorful and articulate as this one.


About the Author:

Gerald Lynch is a retired oil driller and freelance writer.

Bobby Weaver is archivist of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.
