It's one of more than a dozen books Groom has written, but certainly the one he's best known for. 

El Paso, the new novel, is set in a very different place and time... along the Mexican border in the early 20th century. 

Cattle, railroads, and Pancho Villa himself all figure prominently in the book. 

Winston Groom pays a visit to talk story and creative process.
