Editor Reviews
From the front Cover This wonderful collection brings together snapshots through time of Texas's vivid history. T. Lindsay Baker's charismatic spirit brings to life moments long forgotten and never before told with stories like The Cowboy and the First Lady, Gunplay at Fastrill, Ancient Gods in the Graveyard, and Ruminations on Amarillo. In G.I. Joe in the Texas Press, the story of a young soldier is recounted: Writing at a time of rationed gasoline and rubber auto tires, another soldier placed the following classied advertisement in a Texas paper: 'Owner of 1940 Ford would like to correspond with widow who owns two tires; object, matrimony. He added, 'Send picture of tires.' These short stories from the 20th century will bring laughter, amazement, and good, old-fashioned fun to history and literature lovers alike.
