I drove across the panhandle of Texas once and it looked as empty as the
landscape in that movie. Never saw a tree. It's so empty as to be spooky
to someone like me always surrounded by wooded hills. Hard to believe
there were once a zillion buffalo out there. Instead I saw the sparse
cattle ranches, with the fence lines going off to the horizon and very
few cattle. So I thought that this is what all of Texas looked like.
