Up to now it's been very difficult to tell truth from half-truths and outright fiction when it comes to the Chicken Ranch, but that's been made much easier with the recent publication of [this book]. Waco Today

"Blaschke's book, to be released on the 43rd anniversary of the closing of the brothel, looks to set the record straight about the famed whorehouse, which was the inspiration of a Broadway musical and film, "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas."" My San Antonio

I thought to myself that there has to be more to it than that-- what happened after Broadway and after Dolly and Burt? It's been 35 years-- what's happened in the interim? I searched around for some other resources on the subject and saw the glowing reviews (and not to mention, it was only published last year!) on this book and decided to treat myself to it.
What a fantastic account on this piece of Texan history. Great pictures, cited sources (which Jan Hutson didn't even have!), and even first-hand material from Miss Edna Milton herself, make this a must-read for anyone interested in Texas history or even if you're like me and are in the musical version!
Take a peek behind the scenes and see what life was really like without the Hollywood glamorization of the infamous Chicken Ranch.
