This is a collection of 70 stories from the popular radio series, Stories from Texas, that runs on the Texas Standard Network of 32 NPR stations across Texas. This is the second book in the series and includes short, memorable stories, that are extensions of the radio stories. Some are inspirational and some are humorous. The book covers the exploits of classic Texans like Sam Houston and Jim Bowie and modern icons such as Barbara Jordan, Mary Kay Ash, and T. Boone Pickens. There are funny folklore tales and urban legends here. Readers may have their phobias spike on them when they are taken up the tallest towers in Texas and into the deepest underwater caves. All the favorite critters are here, too, the coral snake, the armadillo, the horny toad, and vultures. The book even takes a look at Texas outside of Texas, such as how Texas, Australia, got its name and the incredible Texas connection to the Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado. There's something here for life-long native Texans, and, for the newcomer, too. For the newcomer or the person abroad longing to be a Texan. this is an excellent primer on the culture of the Lone Star State.
