From Our Editors

'This deceptively slender volume is three things: a how-to-book, an aesthetic feast and a moral tale.... To same a last remnant (of the forest) is a triumph, but it is a trump to be savored in sadness. Our ancestors found East Texas a land of beauty spots.' --'Dallas Morning News'

Editorial Reviews

"...this graceful blend of history, narrative and dialogue paints a noble portrait of one more disappearing chunk of Americana." - Los Angeles Times Book Review
