With particular interest in how people take the hand they'apos;ve been dealt - fate, family, circumstance, luck - and craft a life for themselves, the authors celebrate the grit and gumption of these Texas originals. Introducing quirky characters and tenacious spirits, Holley'apos;s stories seek out the personality of the small town while Brown'apos;s photographs capture the essence of a changing landscape.Hometown Texas aims not to be nostalgic or sentimental but rather to show readers an unknown Texas - one that, while not vanishing, is certainly on the wane.Organized into five topographical, geographic, and cultural sections - East, West, North, South, and Central - three dozen stories and more than eighty complementary images work to create a parallel narrative to reveal what Brown has described as the collective, various, remarkably complex soul that makes Texas unique."Hometown Texas is an exploration across miles and cultures, of well-traveled roads and forgotten byways, deep into the heart of Texas.
