The Cedar Choppers: Life on the Edge of Nothing (Sam Rayburn Series on Rural Life, sponsored by Texas A&M University-Commerce #24) (Paperback)
“Meticulously researched and engagingly written, Ken Roberts’ The Cedar Choppers leads us on a fascinating journey to the heart of this legendary Texas subculture.”— Steven L. Davis, PEN USA–winning author and past president, Texas Institute of Letters
“Meant first for general audiences but badly needed by scholars, the work brings a neglected group into the southwestern history canon . . . a readable, conversational narrative.”—Southwestern Historical Quarterly
“The best Texas book I’ve read of late was The Cedar Choppers: Life on the Edge of Nothing by Ken Roberts. It doubles as one of the most instructive books about Austin’s history and culture.”—Austin American Statesman

The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival was a huge success!
Collected Works was very proud to have been on-site all weekend as the official bookstore of the Santa Fe Festival. Bestselling, prizewinning authors and literary legends like Margaret Atwood, Joy Harjo, Colson Whitehead, Sandra Cisneros, Jon Krakauer, amongst others, spent time in our mini-bookstore in the lobby of the Convention Center and signed hundreds of books, which we now have in stock. So if you missed the festival but are looking for a signed copy of one of their books, please call us or come in to browse.
