Author: Dan Vanderburg

Novelist Dan Vanderburg is a sixth-generation Texan who grew up hearing how his ancestors worked to build their farms, ranches, and their way of life on the Texas frontier. Those accounts lit a spark in Dan as a youngster to learn more about the people that built Texas.

In addition to Dan's activities as a novelist and poet, he is an accomplished lecturer and trainer.  He speaks for social, fraternal, and business organizations, as well as church groups, schools, and retirements complexes.  In his presentation "Gone to Texas," Dan discusses what life was really like on the raw frontier of early Texas, and includes book signings.
