Texas' turning point is documented in a new book by historian and journalist Bartee Haile.

Haile's book, "Texas Boomtowns: A History of Blood and Oil," was released in March and has garnered much attention for its colorful storytelling, which includes scandalous tales of crime and corruption that followed Beaumont's Spindletop well striking oil in 1901.
