Synopsis: Gunnar Brune's Springs of Texas, first published privately in 1981, is a classic work of Texas natural history that provides the only thorough treatment of more than twenty-nine hundred springs in 183 Texas counties. The book also includes an in-depth discussion of the general characteristics of springs - their physical and prehistoric settings, their historical significance, and their associated flora and fauna. Nine maps locate the state's springs and seeps, hot and warm springs, spring aquifers, mineral springs, and early trails related to springs. Brune also addresses the issues surrounding springs and Texas water law. In the introduction to the new edition, Helen C. Besse updates this information as well as other sections of the book. When completed, Volume II will cover the other 71 counties of the state. As cases arise concerning everything from the rights of spring owners to the fate of endangered species, as clean water supplies become ever more important, Springs of Texas will remain a key reference for all those interested in this valuable and fragile resource.
About the Author: The late GUNNAR BRUNE was a geologist who worked for the U.S. Soil Conservation Service and the Texas Water Development Board. HELEN C. BESSE is president of Capital Environmental Services and of the Ecological Recovery Foundation in Austin.
