Editorial Reviews

Big Bend Now - Lonn Taylor
I recently picked up a book that is so good that I was tempted to lift several chapters from it for my columns. Instead I decided to write a column about it. It is Mavericks: A Gallery of Texas Characters, by Gene Fowler, published by the University of Texas Press in 2008.

What People are Saying About This

Anne Dingus
Although other books exist on Texas characters, they are fluff. Fowler's book is much more solid and extremely well researched. I like his take--it's serious as well as refreshing. . . . There's a fair amount of appeal here to a general readership, especially given that cool photographs back up the fun stories. The pictures are a major plus.
