Yet More Texana
You know you're a Texan if . . . you measure distance in tanks of gasoline, you think one of the four major food groups is Skoal, or your wife's hairdo is so big and round that it has smaller hairdos orbiting around it. You Know You're a Texan If . . . takes a squinty-eyed look at what makes Texas Texasy. Illustrated by award-winning cartoonist J. D. Crowe and published by Great Texas Line Press, this pocket-sized book makes a perfect gift for a newcomer to the Lone Star state or for a displaced Texan who's a-hankerin' for home.
Author Glenn Dromgoole of the Abilene Reporter-News wrote of You Know You're a Texan If . . .: ''More laughs per square inch than any book I've read."
