Editorial Reviews

Harrigan tests the validity of [his] love of place in a series of essays about the Texas that does not appear on the television show 'Dallas' or in the pages of the Neiman-Marcus catalogue. And he finds a place of remarkable natural variety and peculiar beauty. A place worth loving.
