    Exactly What I Was Thinking!

    WOW! After moving to Texas from Virginia several years ago, I had a hard time getting any answers to the important questions about this state, the way people acted and why. Seems everyone I knew was a 'Native' Texan, most had never traveled outside of the state, and therefore did not understand my confusion. Upon reading this book, most of my questions were answered. It was amazing that the book seemed to be written directly from my own personal life and experiences! After reading the book, I read the forward, and found out that the author was also from Virginia, which explains the similarities in perspective. I would highly recommend this book to anyone you know who is or has moved to Texas, who is curious about the oddities of Texans, or any 'Native' Texans you know with a sense of humor!

    So realistic !!!

    My family and I moved to Texas 6 months ago. Mrs. Bryant describes this beautiful state perfectly and with the greatest sense of humor. A must read if you relocate to Texas or plan to visit. It also answered many of our 'newcomer' questions - the kind you are afraid to ask... Texas is a great state and this is a great book.
