Synopsis: San Antonio is in the national spotlight as one of the fastest growing and most dynamic emerging major cities in America. Yet local lore has it that every Texan has two hometowns his own and San Antonio. The Alamo City's charm, colorful surroundings, and diverse cultures combine to make it one of the most interesting places in Texas and the nation. In San Antonio Uncovered, Mark Rybczyk examines some of the city's internationally known legends and lore (including ghost stories) and takes a nostalgic look at landmarks that have disappeared. He also introduces some of the city’s characters and unusual features, debunks local myths, and corrects common misconceptions.

Rybczyk embraces San Antonio's peculiarities by chronicling the cross-country journey of the World’s Largest Boots to their home in front of North Star Mall; the origins of the Frito corn chip and chewing gum; the annual Cornyation of King Anchovy; and Dwight Eisenhower's stint as the football coach at St Mary’s University.

This completely updated, new edition of San Antonio Uncovered highlights San Antonio as a modern, thriving city with the feel of a small town that sees beauty in the old and fights to save it, even something as seemingly insignificant as an old Humble Oil Station; and its diverse inhabitants as those who appreciate the blending of the old and the new at the Tobin Center and fight to save what’s left of the Hot Wells Hotel.

About the Author: An award-winning disc jockey, Mark Louis Rybczyk was born and raised in San Antonio. Rybczyk started his career at KJ-97 in San Antonio before moving to 96.3 FM KSCS in Dallas, where he and his partner, Terry Dorsey, have the longest-running morning show in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Rybczyk also penned "The Travis Club," (2013), a historical thriller based on San Antonio lore.
Robert Rivard is the former editor and vice-president of the "San Antonio Express-News" and the founder and director of the "Rivard Report," an online local magazine serving San Antonio s urban core.
