Texas: A Photographic Journey

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Lone Star State shines in Texas: A Photographic Journey, by award-winning photographers Kathy Adams Clark and Larry Ditto, with captions by Houston Chronicle columnist Gary Clark. These three Texans guide readers on a grand tour from the Panhandle to the Gulf Coast and from Big Bend to the Piney Woods. Get a taste of West Texas: see the Pecos River, ghost towns, and the Hill Country; paddle Santa Elena Canyon and hike Big Bend National Park. Visit East Texas Big Thicket and the Panhandle’s longhorns. Then head down south for Gulf-style fishing, birdwatching, and beachcombing. With views of everything from moss-shaded bayous to the stately Alamo, these splendid color photographs are a true Texas experience.
