Texas history is full of rich, colorful stories. The stories aren't the only thing colorful. Bonnie and Clyde has major history with Dallas. Nearly everyone in the US knows of Dallas's historical tragedy with President Kennedy. Oil runs deep in Houston's culture but the story of space may be even stronger. The state's historical persons, events and places can keep travelers entertained for a long, long time.
When my co-author and I decided to write EXPLORING TEXAS HISTORY: WEEKEND ADVENTURES we knew we wanted to include as many stories as possible. So we used the Texas historical stories as part of our organization structure. So you'll find stories in the introductions to the five main areas of Texas. Stories introducing the various towns and cities. Stories. Stories. Stories. We took the main Texas cities of Dallas, Houston, Austin, El Paso, and San Antonio and used them as hubs. Trust me, history permeates these pages. It's much more than a mere travel guide.
Note: Unfortunately, the book is out of print. But I have some copies that I'm willing to sell. Just remember that the book came in 2003 so there have been some changes but the stories remain the same, the towns and cities are where they are supposed to be.
