Langford’s current book, Fog At Hillingdon, features his lifelong fascination with the magic and mystery of how fog’s aura affects the landscape. The Introduction is authored by world renown author Rick Bass, and the Foreword is by equally acclaimed conservationist, Dr. Andrew Sansom. Langford’s wife of 49 years, Myrna, curated the quotes for the book. This is the sixth book in the Kathie and Ed Cox Jr. Books on Conservation Leadership, published by Texas A&M University Press, 2015, sponsored by The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, Texas State University.
Langford’s previous book, co-authored with Lorie Woodward Cantu, features his family’s seven-generation ranch. The book, Hillingdon Ranch: Four Seasons, Six Generations, was released in 2013.

He Myrna live on their part of Hillingdon Ranch, near Comfort. They have two children, and their families, including four grandchildren.
In recognition of his photography and natural resource advocacy accomplishments, Langford has been honored by having the Images for Conservation Fund's second book dedicated to him - and an exceptional honor since ICF's first book was dedicated to Lady Bird Johnson. More praise for Hillingdon Ranch: Four Seasons, Six Generations comes from its endorsements by Nolan Ryan, Laura Bush, and George Strait.
