Five Stars for the Lone Star State
This book is a riot! I don't think I've laughed so hard in a long time. Definitions--and even a guide to Texan pronunciations--are funny, imagination, and maybe even true. Even after reading it over and over again, I'm still not sure if the author is putting me on or serious--and I'm not willing to risk ridicule by writing and asking him, though he sounds like he'd probably answer. As a guide book, this Texan tome tells you how to pronounce words like a Texan does so you won't feel out of place when you visit. It also gives you a smattering of history that even kids will love to listen to. I highly recommend this book for anyone considering a visit to Texas, and it ought to be required reading for every new resident.

Talkin' the Talk and Walkin' the Texan
If you're wanting to experience some of the Old South's down home cookin', then take some of this book home to savor for dessert after a hearty (laugh, that is) meal. This is a great compilation of places in the Lone Star State that you might have driven through, but didn't get the time to experience. Great reading for any road warrior!Was this review helpful?

Tall Texas Tales a'Talkin'!!!
'Talkin' Texan' is a humorous anecdote about some of the places in the so-called Lone Star state. It's good, fun reading when you feel like your life just got stuck in a big pile of some fresh Texas cow pie! Break out the atlas, sharpen your Texas tongue and bark to the kids...'Road Trip!'Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
