Red actually went to West Texas State where he graduated with a degree in agricultural chemistry.

He published a book in September 2003, Born to This Land published by Tech University Press. It was a joint effort between Red Steagall and Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Skeeter Hagler. The book contains Hagler's black and white studies of modern ranching, accompanied by Steagall's award winning poetry. The Academy of Western Artists named Born to This Land as recipient of the Will Rogers Award for best book of 2003.
