Overview

Grab your spurs, saddle up, and hold on tight for a rollicking, rip roaring ride thru the Great State of Texas. Yore gonna be rode hard and put away laffin', larnin' Texan and Texas Towns frum A tuh Z. Giddy-yup.

340 pages of pure Texas Humor from the Great State of Texas.

Well, partner, you may have thought that you just crossed a border or two, but you have entered a whole 'nuther country. You have ventured into the Great State of Texas and any resemblence between Texas and those Foreign States in the rest of America are purely coincidence.

Yup, The Republic of Texas was once it's own country and many Texans think it still is separate and distinctly different from the rest of these here United States.

Yep, we walk a lot taller, talk a little milder, love a lot better, and the Author will share many of the best kept secrets about his favorite Texas Towns from Amarillo to Zapata.

Talkin' Texan has a handy little dictionary so y'all can larn' how to understand, pronounce, and speak words just like a real live native Texan.

Yup, reading Talkin' Texan will be a life changing experience and y'all will never be the same ever again.

If y'all liked "Gone with the Wind", "Moby Dick", and "A Tale of Two Cities", then y'all are gonna love Talkin' Texan.

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.

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!

'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!'
