Texas in Her Own Words

TEXAS IN HER OWN WORDS evolved out of Tweed Scott’s 4,000 mile quest to discover the heart and soul of Texas and in particular what it is about Texans ¯ a “T” Chromosome? ¯ that makes them so proud. Included are interviews with Willie Nelson, Liz Carpenter, Darrell Royal and other famous (and some not so famous but grass root) Texans. These "Texan Words" are sprinkled throughout in a unique mix of fascinating factoids and photos characteristic of Texas pride along with articles about such things as the Texas State Cemetery, Rules for Moving to Texas and Showing Texas Pride. Discover the Texas mystique and catch a glimpse into the Texas psyche with your own copy of TEXAS IN HER OWN WORDS. Texas gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman says, "Tweed Scott has done a great service to Texas. He might, I believe, even make a pretty fair Lt. Governor. But politics, of course, is never as important as people and places and the cowboy poetry of the heart. Texas In Her Own Words is chock-full of all of these things. It deserves a special place on your bookshelf. Say right between Larry McMurtry and J. Frank Dobie." The perfect gift, TEXAS IN HER OWN WORDS is a work of art that can be enjoyed by book enthusiasts of all ages.
