“Footprints in the Dew: The Last Ten Tapes” has been shown to sellout crowds at venues throughout the region.
Lewis’ book is about the life of Damon “Chub” Anderson and his role in the unsolved murder of prominent Oklahoma rancher E.C. Mullendore III. On Sept. 26, 1970, Mullendore was killed in his home on the vast Cross Bell Ranch in Osage County. Although Anderson was in the house with him at the time, he was never charged with the murder. In the following years, both the murder and Anderson’s own life took on a mythic quality.
“Footprints in the Dew” tells the story of what really happened on the night of the murder, as well as the events of Anderson’s life before and after. Anderson collaborated on the project until his death in 2010.
Since its release in 2015, “Footprints in the Dew” has been consistently listed at No. 1 on The Oklahoman’s list of bestselling books in Oklahoma.
Books will be available at the screening and can also be ordered at www.originalbuffalodale.com.
