The Heritage Lands of the 711 Ranch in Comal County, Texas
The history of the 711 Ranch lands, now the land of Mystic Shores on Canyon Lake
Book: "The Heritage Lands of the 711 Ranch"
What happened here happened all over Texas!
The professionally-produced book contains 320 pages of stories that reveal the:
- the Ancient Era of indigenous people and Native Americans;
- the Land Grant Era, when heroes of the Texas Revolution and others earned rights to claim land in Texas;
- the Settler Era, where German and other immigrants migrated to these lands, claimed land, and scratched out a living and built communities; and
- the Ranch Era, when men accumulated acreage and raised cattle and sheep, culminating with the premier 711 Ranch owned by L. A and Pearl Nordan of San Antonio.
The book contains photos through the ages, original artwork, plus several full-color pages. The hard-back book has a leather-like cover “branded” with an illustration of the last 711 Ranch cowboy riding horseback across the ranch.
