On Texas Backroads
By Carlton Stowers
A collection of true stories set in Texas by author Carlton Stowers, with foreword by Elroy Bode. The pieces, each just three or four pages long, cover a wide range of topics, all related to Texas -- from the invention of the hamburger to the world's smallest skyscraper, from a hometown Carnegie Library to the first Hilton hotel, from the best chicken-fried steak to barbecue as a religious experience, from perfect days with grandchildren to quiet walks observing nature. Stowers, an award-winning author and journalist, has written more than forty books, most of them set in Texas.
