Editorial Reviews

David Marion Wilkinson
Richard Zelade has devoted a lifetime to the most storied region in Texas. He does not only teach us about the places, personalities, history, and culture that has branded the Hill Country with its timeless allure, he teaches us at the same time to love it. I know of no guide book born of such intelligence, knowledge, heart, and passion.
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.
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.
Gerald E. McLeod
....This is truly the one complete guide for anyone interested in exploring the rich tapestry of the region. Whether you're an armchair traveler or a serious day tripper, this book will give you a new understanding of how the West was won.
