Take a rollicking ride through Texas culture and history with this quirky illustrated guide to all things Texana. Beyond a celebration of classic cowboy culture, you will discover the only Czech word known by all Texans, what city outlawed dancing for 52 years, the Texan history that underlies the Oscars, what automotive subculture is called “hip hop on wheels”, and what town was named after a famous English novelist. Fascinating factoids paired with whimsical hand-drawn art bring to life the land, food, nature, events, and music that collectively form the unparalleled culture of the Lone Star State. Young and old alike will enjoy this visual feast almost as much as a plate of barbecue.
