Carol Taylor, the chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, tells the story of Ben K. Green of Cumby, a cattleman who became a noted author with his cowboy tales.  Historian and critic A.C. Greene, Jr. called Green "the last real voice of old-time Texas in literature."  In particular, Carol discusses his book, "The Last Trail Drive Through Downtown Dallas."
