About the Book
The Tabernacle follows the sweeping 13,000 year history of two central Texas farm communities: Alameda and Cheaney.
Searching along winding wooded trails, uncovering hidden homesteads miles from the nearest road and listening at last to the words of teachers four decades his senior, author Jeff Clark begins to hear the tale of timeless lands, and the lessons as it finally breaks open in his own life. This sprawling epic is full of firsthand testimony about the harsh settlement of the Texas frontier, as well as surprising glimpses into his storytellers’ twenty-first century lives.
The Tabernacle will move you deeply, as it has moved within the lives of many generations encamped along the shores of the Leon River.
