Catherine Nixon Cooke

A larger-than-life Texas oilman,
entrepreneur, and explorer, Tom Slick trekked the
Himalayas in search of the legendary Yeti,
developed new breeds of cattle and grasses,
founded five scientific research institutes, and
wrote two books on world peace before his untimely
and mysterious death in 1962. His relentless
search for adventure and knowledge inspires
readers to harness their curiosity on their own
journeys of discovery.
