Interwoven is a narrative about the great years of the Cattle Empire in Texas. And woven into this chronicle of the plains is the story of Sallie Reynolds as a girl and Mrs. Sallie Reynolds Matthews as a young wife and mother as Texas entered the twentieth century. "Though it was written as a family history, Interwoven is one of those books that surpasses its genre. No doubt members of both the Matthews and the Reynolds clans got great satisfaction from reading the history of the families as written by the matriarch. But now two generations of Texas readers have been able to share the story of the family, region, and state" James Ward Lee).
