Big Red

Big Red is a candid first-person account of the life and times of an extraordinary Texan. The book begins with an account of McCombs’s childhood in the West Texas town of Spur, where he first went into business for himself at the age of ten by selling peanuts to farm workers. Through all of his wheeling and dealing, however, McCombs says, he’s only signed one lifetime contract—with his wife, Charline.
