Texas on Your Bookshelf

Glenn Dromgoole, who lives up in Abilene, has created in the Houston Chronicle a 10-book list of must-haves for those interested in putting together a library of books on Texas. The list includes a little of everything from perhaps the most famous novel about Texas, Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove, to the classic non-fiction of Texas greats John Graves and J. Frank Dobie, and even includes what has to be one of the best cookbooks ever to come out of Texas. This list is a good start...but don't stop here because there's plenty more where these came from...
