    Great book

    I bought this book for a friend's mother who is from China. She loved the pictures and said that it inspired her enough to come to Texas. She has never been here and does not speak English. The pictures were beautiful and gave her a good tour of the state.

    A reviewer

    This book contains a nice sample of the most important places of my home state, such as Big Bend, Palo Duro Canyon, the Alamo, the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Austin's State Capitol and the Ft. Worth Stockyards. The four most populous cities of my home state receive respectful coverage, (Houston gets 16 pages) but there are plenty of scenic photographs to satisfy those who prefer the countryside over the urban life. Although some pictures in the book are dated (there is a photo of Galveston Bay before the Kemah Boardwalk existed, and the presidential busts created by David Adickes seen on page 50 and 51 are now in Virginia), this book is a great portrait of a state that offers much more than cowboys and ranches.
