Product Description:

The Lone Star state can seem like an enigma to those who have never had the pleasure of spending time there. Texans seem to walk differently, talk differently, and dress differently than any other people in the nation. Jay B Sauceda, a Texas native, understands the trouble that “foreigners” from New York to California have comprehendin’ their Texan neighbors. This funny and engaging primer on how to be a Texan will help you get a better handle on the unique Texas history, language, culture, customs, and do’s and don’ts―whether you’re movin’ there or just passin’ through.

Jay B Sauceda is a photographer and lifelong Texan. He moved from La Porte to Austin to attend the University of Texas, and “stayed for the ample supply of patio bars and beer specials.” His clients have included BMW, Microsoft, IBM, the San Antonio Spurs, the Times of London, Texas A&M, Texas Monthly, and the University of Texas. He believes in “firm handshakes, Willie Nelson, and telling compelling stories.”

In her highly opinionated book, she'll help you sort through the options so you can tailor a vacation that's right for you.

Frommer's Texas covers all of the Lone Star State's highlights―from the vibrant nightlife in Austin to the historic sights of Dallas and San Antonio, from the trails of Big Bend to parades of longhorns in Fort Worth and more.

This guide has:

• Exact pricing, with dollar amounts listed for all lodgings, attractions, restaurants, tours, and shops, so there's no guessing or nasty surprises

• Destination highlights from all the major cities (Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin), plus many more outstanding destinations (Big Bend and Guadalupe Mountains national parks, the gulf coast, and the panhandle plains)
• Detailed maps throughout, plus a handy pullout map

These off-road sights are what truly set the Lone Star State apart from its neighbors.

Completely reimagined for a new generation of road-trip takers and explorers, Backroads of Texas is lavishly illustrated with photographs, maps, and vintage advertising of Texas's many scenic, historic, and cultural attractions.
