Today’s entries come to you from Storeybook Reviews, where you can find my guest post listing some of my personal favorites in categories such as Author, Literary Genre, Movie, Movie Director, and Musical Scene.
At Books in the Garden, I discuss the genesis of the novel as well as my travels to locations included in the book, why it developed into a story about westward expansion instead of focusing solely on Texas, and my love for westerns in both cinema and print.
By the way… speaking of travel, some of you have expressed interest in knowing where in Texas the blog and websites involved in the tour are located. The locations include (in no particular order) Spur, San Antonio, Round Rock, Willis, College Station, Sundown, Paris, Burleson, Spring, Humble, Cleburne, Houston, Colleyville, Arlington, and Fluvanna. That’s miles and miles of Texas, but fortunately those of you following the tour can virtually travel to these places by just clicking on the links!
