Overview

The Texas of memory is a mixture of picnics and rodeos, windy landscapes and lush deltas. Within these pages evocative essays accompany archival imagery to bring back into focus those days gone by. We revisit the state’s major attractions, from the Alamo to the Johnson Space Center and beyond, as well as intimate home scenes, and celebrate the diversity of landscape and the impact of the railroad and the oil industry. We also recall the cowboy and ranching roots of this proud people. While the images shown within these pages reflect long-ago events and places, they also embody what remains—the character and individuality of today’s Lone Star State. Whatever your favorite time or place, this book will bring back the flavor of the way we were in Texas not so very long ago. . . .
