Magnificent Marathon Basin

by Wedin, AnneJo P.


"It may be said that communities are often greater than the sum of their parts. This greater sense may indeed be a spirit imbedded in all who know and live in a particular place. This is certainly the case with Marathon, Texas. A History of Marathon Texas is a rich account of the many people and events that make up this most unique West Texas town. The story of Marathon is the story of the American West as cowboys, Indians, soldiers, railroadmen, miners, merchants, families, and many more have crossed the historical stage. The result is a thread in the tapestry of Texas local history. In a sense it is a history of home and for many people Marathon serves as that special place. For those interested in the Big Bend region of Texas this volume is a must." - Kenneth D. Perry, Director Museum and Archives of the Big Bend
