Based on research in Humphreys vast archives at the University of Texas, it provides the first full picture of his life and identifies many untraced sources of his work.

The guiding principle is an exploration of Humphreys satire on life-destroying myths: the myths of the hunter, the South, the cowboy hero, the Depression-era outlaw, and, supremely, the myth of Texas. To his dismay, Humphrey was often seen as a celebrator of these myths.
