A treasure of love and connection, Rich White Trash is the galloping saga of an enormous—and sometimes crazy—Catholic family living in Austin, Texas. Land, oil, cattle, drugs, sex, religion, rebellion, gun running, politics, and patriotism collide with dreams and dysfunction in this wild, quarter-century ride.
The Landry family's 700-acre ranch in the hill country outside Austin was a goldmine the family could always rely on, and patriarch VF Landry believed it would keep his eight children tethered to their roots. But between verbal and physical abuse at the hands of their beautiful mother, their father's obsession with Texas politics, and their own occasional knock-down, blowout fights, the eight Landry kids were determined to live life on their own terms—even if that meant trouble.
In this sprawling chronicle, secrets are revealed. Apocryphal treasures are found. Fortunes are made and taken away. And in the end, the land wins. Rich White Trash gives you mystery, love, death, and a heapin' cup full of Texas.
