Handcuffed and arrested while TV cameras rolled and newspaper reporters scribbled notes – this wasn't how Texas Lil's dream was supposed to end. She'd spent 27 years turning the Texas Lil’s Dude Ranch into a premier vacation spot. Now it was smoldering from a fire so huge that the glow was seen as far away as Fort Worth. Police accused Texas Lil of being the arsonist and made a public spectacle of arresting her and ruining her reputation.

Texas Lil was destined to be an entrepreneur. Despite a philandering, money-burning husband as a business partner, Texas Lil used savvy and sweat to turn a tiny shop in her garage into a thriving, popular business. She parlayed that into the Texas Lil’s Dude Ranch, 200 acres of gorgeous rolling property near what would become the Texas Motor Speedway

She accomplished all this while raising children and dealing with a drunken, abusive husband. But personal tragedies have never been strangers to this determined woman. She handled the sensational murder of her brother Stan Farr, who was shot along with Priscilla Davis and two others at the Cullen Davis mansion in 1976.

This amazing story of how a single mom overcame a never-ending series of tragedies, built a successful business, and lived a roaring good life comes to life on the pages of Texas Lil's book, “Trails, Trials, and Tears”. It's a completely revealing look into the life of a remarkable woman who keeps pushing forward no matter how many times she stumbles along the way.
