Tinged with nostalgia for a bygone way of life, the essays acquaint us with the pleasure of drinking a Coca Cola in a bottle that sports ice crystals ("Cold Drink") or a Comanche ceremony in Palo Duro Canyon to re-sanctify the canyon that was once sacred ("Quanah's People"). He also explores more personal terrain in such stories as "Boys," in which he recounts a trip he and his grown sons took in remembrance of their summer vacations in Fort Davis when the boys were young.
Woolley's thoughtful take imbues each essay with a generosity of spirit and a real enthusiasm for his subjects. From the stars of the Davis Mountains to the sophistication of Austin and Dallas, Texas Road Trip is an homage to Texas—its history, people, and culture.
