Editorial Reviews

Robert Draper
Richard Zelade's Texas Hill Country is, quite simply, the bible for aficionados of that wondrous region. This new edition contains rich historical insights and practical guidance. It's an indispensable reference.
Jesse Sublett III
The geography and history of the Texas Hill Country is endlessly fascinating…. A tireless prospector of Texas regional knowledge (as well as a clever phrase-spinner), Richard Zelade has no equal.
Ted Siff
....The new 6th Edition is not only updated, but bigger and better. Even though I've lived in Central Texas for 40 years, I wouldn't travel the Texas Hill Country without it.
Gerald E. McLeod
Richard Zelade’s Texas Hill Country is equal parts history book and travel guide. He takes the reader on a leisurely journey along the back roads pointing out the landmarks and the stories behind them. No other book brings the complete story of the area alive with such colorful detail. If high school history was this interesting, it would be every student’s favorite subject. From the Native Texan to the weekend day tripper, everyone will discover new gems in the guide or be reintroduced to old favorites in this beautiful region of country.
