The stories of thievery and murder are so revealing that even our own Collin County Sheriff, Terry Box, plans to attend an upcoming presentation at the Collin County Historical Society on Saturday, July 30.
Local author Randy W. Farmer plans to bring the intrigue of 19th century outlaws to life as he focuses his presentation on one of the more suspicious chapters of our county’s early existence.
Upon learning of the modern day lawman’s interest, the author and lecturer turned to modesty. “I’m not sure I will be able to teach Sheriff Box much about the law but I’ll bet he enjoys the stories and the slide show,” said Farmer.
Please join the Collin County Historical Society for this first in a series of lectures. Farmer’s latest effort, From Blackland Prairie to Blacktop: A History of Collin County,will be available to purchase at the event for $39.95. After the presentation, Randy will be available to sign the books. There is a special promotion for anyone attending. For $49.99 you will automatically become a member of the Collin County Historical Society for one year and receive a copy of the book.
