" I recently visited San Antonio, Texas where right now, a modern-day oil boom is underway to the southeast of that proud city. New technology has allowed petroleum companies to drive their drills 11,000 feet beneath the desert floor to a rock unit known as the Eagle Ford Shale. I recently got to visit a friend who owns a small ranch in Karnes County, right in the middle of this bonanza. I took some pictures while on Jow Orr's ranch. First though, a little background."
