From the Back Cover:

What Makes Texas Big and Bright?

Texas is a special place. It is celebrated for its basics: barbecue and Tex-Mex, boots and jeans and cowboy hats, pickup trucks, the Alamo, oil wells, longhorns, and bluebonnets. It is recognized for its distinctive
shape and its diversity of landscape. From Palo Duro Canyon to the Big Bend and from the Rio Grande River to Caddo Lake, there are mountains and plains, deserts and swamps. It has a history that dates back to
early Spanish missions and carries forward to missions into space coordinated from the Johnson Space Center. It clings to its Lone Star, a reminder that Texas was once its own republic, and Texans can (and will) boast about a fairly long list of biggest, tallest, longest, most, first, and only. Texas Bigger and Brighter illustrates the quintessential symbols that make Texas so fascinating and unique.
Profiled here are fifty classic symbols of this extraordinary state, revealing little-known facts, longtime secrets, and historical legends. From blue bells to armadillos and the San Antonio River Walk to Cadillac Ranch,
here’s the inside story about the very things that give the state its character.

and tales based on history, folklore, and
outrageous lies. She lives in Spicewood, Texas.
