Mythic Texas

Book Description

For Texans and non-Texans alike, Mythic Texas is a fascinating journey into a culture that is like no other in the world. When you think of the word "Texas," vivid images come to mind. The symbols and legends that most of us associate with Texas all have their basis in the history, culture, and geography of the state. Through the eyes of the people of Texas, this book takes a look at some of these symbols—oil wells, the "leather throne" (the saddle), longhorn cattle, and the famous Lone Star of the Texas Rangers—and comments on their relationship to Texas today.
