    A Tour of Texas

    This book I bought as a gift for relatives in Slovenia who do not speak or read English. I wanted something that was light-weight for traveling on an airplane and that had lots of pictures with little writing. This paperback is perfect. It is a very nice size and the pictures are clear and cover just about every area of Texas. There are brief descriptions by each picture but it is not necessary to read them to be able to see what Texas is like. This is exactly what I wanted and I am sure they will like it. It would be a very nice gift.
