From the first 17th- century Spanish missions to Johnson Space Center's mission control, no other state exemplifies the independent spirit of the frontier more than Texas. It's the largest state in the continental US, hosting 11 different distinct ecological regions, from desert valleys to wooded mountain slopes. Explore the brush country of the Rio Grande and step among the yucca and cacti of the south Texan desert. Walk through the dusty forts and settlements of the Big Bend and ride horseback through a ranch larger than all of Rhode Island. See the Lone Star State in this photographic tribute of everything from the High Plains to the Gulf Coast.

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.
