Abilene Reporter-News - “Oil field Trash: Life and Labor in the Oil Patch” (Texas A&M University Press, $29.95 hardcover) covers the Texas oil scene from 1901 to 1960. Earlier this year, Texas Tech University Press brought out a book of Weaver’s humorous tales called “Hotter ‘n Pecos and Other West Texas Lies,” which also deals with life in the oil fields. “Oil field Trash” is a more serious — though certainly not dull — history.
