Few books have been written about Texas Longhorn cattle containing accurate facts about their history with exception of The Longhorns by J. Frank Dobie, published in 1941 and considered a classic in longhorn circles. For historical accuracy of research, we also reccommend The Criollo Spanish Cattle in the Americas by John E. Rouse 1977 and Gathering Texas Gold, J. Frank Dobie and The Men Who Saved the Longhorn by Terrence J. Barragy 2003. End notes from Barragy's book
