“Walt and Isabel Davis bring decades of experience in natural history and love of Texas to this delightfully written account of the escapades along its edges. It is history and travel writing at its best and suggests many weekend trips that you will want to take. Be sure to take this book along with you.”—Ron Tyler, Amon Carter Museum
