Based on the extremely popular weekly television show of the same name, Texas Country Reporter features 50 stories about the people and places along the backroads of Texas. Written by the host, producer, and creator of the show, Bob Phillips, it features extraordinary individuals with a passion for what they do, places that time seems to have forgotten, celebrations as big and brash as the Lone Star State itself. Like the T.V. show, the book will be, in Bob's words, "a tribute to the real heroes of our time -- the everyday men and women who make Texas such an incredible place". Infused with love, admiration -- and sometimes amusement -- Phillips' reporting has earned him a devoted viewership and brand-recognition throughout the state. His folksy narrative together with numerous color photographs, some captured from the TV show's video footage, make this book reach not only deep into the heart of Texas but also into the heart of Texas but also into the heart of anyone who reads it.

From the Back Cover:

From Luckenbach to Lubbock, Galveston to Greenville, Bob Phillips has spent nearly three decades traveling the backroads of Texas searching for and celebrating 'the everyday men and women who make Texas such an incredible place.' Here are fifty stories straight from the heart of Texas Country Reporter, the Emmy award-winning television program created, produced, and hosted by Bob Phillips. Meet a cowboy with the heart of a poet and a woman whose 'secret sauce' can sweeten a sour accordion. Visit a resurrected ghost town and a sanctuary for abandoned pigs. Stop by offbeat eateries where you can sip coffee as they wash your car or enjoy truly Texas-sized pancakes. For fans of Texas Country Reporter, this casebound companion book will recall some favorite stories. For non-Texans, it serves up a sampling of the unique people and places that make the Lone Star State larger than life. (8 3/4 x 11, 164 pages, color photos, hard cover)
