If you're gonna go big, go to Texas! Scoot your boots into Houston for the rodeo and then raft down the Rio Grande. Two-step your way through Austin, swim with the Gulf Coast sea turtles, shop the boutiques of Big D, mosey through a field of bluebonnets and don't forget to remember the Alamo. Grit and grace grow beautifully in the Lone Star state, the place where a Texas-sized "ya'll" makes us Southerners feel down home. We don’t mind if you judge this book by its cover.
