Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393050432, Hardcover)The biggest collection of writing about Texas yet assembled. A VAST LAND combining the West, the South, and the Border, small dusty towns and gleaming modern cities. Texas has a history and identity all its own, and a mythology bigger than the Lone Star State itself. In this anthology. Don Graham has rounded up a comprehensive collection of writings that provides an overview of the diversity and excellence of Texas literature and reveals its vital contribution to America's literary landscape: from early accounts of life on the wild frontier told by the likes of Andy Adams and J. Frank Dobie to contemporary fiction by such well-known Texan authors as Larry McMurtry and Sandra Cisneros, as well as recent nonfiction by Molly Ivins, Mary Karr, Robert Caro, and Kinky Friedman. The result is a sometimes rowdy, always artful panorama of fable and truth, humor and pathos--all growing out of the state that continues to stimulate the collective imagination like no other.
