The finest handmade boots, saddles, and leather goods that can be found have been made by one Texas family for almost a century. And for just as long, people who pass through M. L. Leddy's doors have been considered part of an extended family with a shared tradition of service and excellence. Now the stories of the products and the people that have kept Texas"and the world"moving in great Western style are collected and paired with historic images from the family's archive and original art photography. Written by Martha and Wilson Franklin, the third generation of Leddy's to mind the store, with author and Texas culture critic John DeMers, and richly illustrated with Mike Marvin's museum-quality photography, this history captures the spirit of M. L. Leddy and the essence of Texas: the strength, the style, and the sense of family that keeps it all real.
