Overview

Texas is the only state in the union that was once an independent nation. Perhaps its this independent spirit—and the states vast size—that has created the grand diversity that is Texas. "Our Texas" is a pictorial celebration that showcases our states stunning vistas, offering a glimpse into what makes the region so unique. From the big skies of the panhandle to the inviting beaches of the Gulf Coast, from the forests of the Piney Woods region to the wildflowers of the Hill Country, from the nightlife of Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth to the Spanish flavor of the Plains, "Our Texas" celebrates the natural, historical, and cultural aspects of the Lone Star State.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
East Texas Historical Association, Fall 2006

“Perhaps some would be perplexed at the need for yet another ‘pretty’ picture book with the Alamo adorning its cover and its contents extolling the grandeur of the great state of Texas. Even as a native enthusiast eager to see Texas universally recognized as a former nation, I was not convinced of the book’s necessity. As I slowly absorbed the visual cornucopia by some of America’s best photographers, I changed my mind.

 

“The book is a perfect gift for family and friends, and unlike many such books, it has great value; I recommend it to anyone who loves beautiful color photographs of Texas’ natural environment.”

In my currect position I normally host training groups from differents parts of the world: China, Russia, Turkey, Vietnam, Poland, India, Hungary. For them coming to USA for the first time is a great experience. Our training center is located in Houston but since there are several weekends in between classes I normally organize sightseeing trips to Dallas, Fort Worth, Sand Antonio and Austin. I have found out that "Our Texas" picture book has the perfect cover as it shows The Alamo and on the inside pages my customers can recognize pictures of Landmarks that they have visited in those trips. When I host a graduation dinner for those groups it is also a highlight for me when I can see their faces after they open the picture book (I have always ask Barnes and Noble people to wrap it as a gift) and see how they start talking in their own language and you can see the excitement right away; then they switch to English and thank us for that gift. That is priceless. I do recommend this picture book for anyone who has a friend, customer, relative coming to Texas for the first time. When I need more than 5 I have to order them 3 weeks in advance and Barnes&Noble keep them for me to pick them up properly wrapped.
