Texas and Texans have been known to boast of having the best or the worst, the most or the least, the largest or the tiniest of just about everything. Texas Trivia: Everything Y'all Need to Know about the Lone Star State reveals the facts that depict the colorful bravado unique to Texas. For instance, not six but seven flags flew over Texas. In 1832 the composer of The Star Spangled Banner, Francis Scott Key, was the counsel hired by Sam Houston to defend him on assault charges. And someone other than Sam Bass may be buried in his grave.
The volume is complemented by newspaper accounts, photographs, and other documentation of these and other little-known bits of Texas history.
Dallas writer Bill Cannon is the author of Tales from Toadsuck Texas, A Treasury of Texas Humor, and two volumes of A Treasury of Texas Trivia.
