Art of the State: Texasby Michael Ennis
"Texas isn't a state, it's a state of mind," say Texans. This illustrated tribute takes us deep inside the heart of Texas-the only state once recognized by the U.S. government as an independent country-and captures the many things that make the Lone Star State special: its huge size, its history of rebellion, its booming economy, and its diverse culture. From cowboys and oil barons to wildcatters, barbecue aficionados, and Tejano music fans, no one who remembers the Alamo will be able resist this book.
