Robert’s Story

Robert’s Story
A Texas Cowboy’s Troubled Life and Horrifying Death
by Stephen G. Michaud

Michaud’s probing biography of Robert East and the iconic San Antonio Viejo ranch offers the chilling terror of a true crime saga while capturing the traditions and heritage of a bygone era of the American ranching lifestyle.

Michaud weaves a tragic tale of intrafamily feuds, legal duplicity, and criminal elder abuse with cinematic depictions of life in Southern Texas. Through extensive reporting, including never-before-published audio recordings, Michaud details Robert East’s rise to power and fortune and the epic greed and deceit that robbed him of his legacy.

Bestselling true crime author shares the gripping and tragic story of a Texas icon

“When it comes to crafting gripping, real-life tales of dark, inhuman schemes, nobody does it better than Stephen G. Michaud,” said Jeff Guinn, New York Times bestselling author of Manson. “After reading about the abominations inflicted on dying Texas rancher Robert East, you may have trouble trusting anyone again. It’s typically great storytelling by a master writer.”


Stephen G. Michaud is an internationally recognized author, co-author, reporter, and editor whose decades-long career credits comprise twenty books with more than two million copies sold. He is a member of the Texas Institute of Letters.
