A charming gift for proud Texans of all ages
Texas from A to Z
written and illustrated by Misha Blaise
Take a rollicking ride through Texas culture and history with this quirky gift book that informs as well as pokes fun at all things Texana. Among the subjects covered: frito pies, “Midland Minnie” (the oldest human skeleton found in the western hemisphere), the Marfa Ghost Lights, San Gertrudis cattle, the Sikh Motorcyle Club, and many more oddities from the Lone Star State. Misha Blaise’s inimitable style makes this book a treat for young and old alike.
