Funny, sincere and historical

by CampbellsMama on 6/30/2012

I've really enjoyed reading this book. It's a collection of things said about the great state - some of the names you know from school. Some from average folks who wrote something in a letter, diary, etc. . . Great coffee table book for someone to peruse.

"It was part of the Texas ritual. We're rich as son-of-a-bitch stew but look how homely we are, just as plain-folksy as Grandpappy back in 1836. We know about champagne and caviar but we talk hog and hominy."
"--Edna Ferber"
"I am delighted to be here with you this evening because after listening to George Bush all these years, I figured you needed to hear what a real Texas accent sounds like."
"--Ann Richards"
