Texas Authors

Being from Texas I enjoy reading Texas authors who write about my territory.  Though I am

global in my outlook I favor good Texas writers.  I enjoy Texas history by authors J. Frank Dobie,

James Haley,  and T. R. Fehrenbach who capture Texas culture from the very beginning as does

James Michener who is not from Texas but spent his final years in Austin and donated his

collection to the University of Texas.  Leon Hale writes accurately of Texans and Texas.

Contemporary writers Jay Brandon, James Carlos Blake, Sara Bird,  Ben Rehder and David

Wilkinson and of course Larry McMurtry are among my favorites.
