From an ancient Indian gathering place to an 1840s trading post to today’s dynamic, world-class metropolis, Dallas has always been a destination for men and women with big dreams and the determination to make them real. It’s a place known for its outsized fortunes and over-the-top fun. Dallas: A Texas Star celebrates that heritage, and reveals the many fascinating faces of the city.

Rich with gorgeous full-color images by world-renowned photographer Carolyn Brown, a longtime Dallas resident, and supplemented by lively essays on many aspects of the city by some of its greatest leaders, Dallas is a lavish feast of words and pictures—and a vivid illustration of what makes Dallas great. It’s also a personal tour of the city, with photographs of every “must-see” attraction and familiar landmark in and around town, as well as off-the-beaten-path sites that may surprise even the savviest Dallasite.

Whether you’re a visitor to “Big D,” a lifelong resident, or a recent Texas transplant, Dallas: A Texas Star provides a warm welcome to the city—and a soaring testament to its elegance, diversity, and beauty. Simply put, it’s the ultimate book on Dallas.
