Texas in her own words is a delightful glimpse into the Texas psyche, and an explanation of the rugged individualism and unbending spirit still alive in the Lone Star State . Texans tell why they are the way they are, why Texas is a land of second chances, and why neighbors still help each other.
Texas in her own words is a collection of interviews with people from all walks of life-famous, not famous, blue collar, white collar, natives, and transplants- all expressing, in their own way, what makes Texas special and what it means to be a Texan. Photos that capture the essence of the land that was once a Republic are sprinkled throughout with factoids and history that reads like a romance.
About the Author:
For nearly forty years, Tweed Scott has been involved with Texas in one way or another. Retired radio personality, operations manager, and veteran of 31 remarkable years in broadcasting, Tweed now writes for several magazines and has built his own writing and public speaking company, Tejas Communications. A Lamar University graduate, Tweed lives with his wife, Zee, in Austin. He is currently working on a second book about Texas. I may not have found the T-Chromosome but I do know that it exists. It is as real as the Alamo, the land and that big Texas sky.
Above all, this book is entertaining and informative and as refreshing as it was to ladle a drink of cool water right out of the horse trough when you were a kid. Tweed Scott has done a great service to Texas .

Texas is kind of the last frontier where people, through sheer determination, will decide to do something and it will happen.

"It's a Texas thing, you either have it or you don't. It's not about being a snob or better than, it something more.
I have traveled the world and as much as I love other cultures and lands, I am always glad to be back home. Texas In Her Own Words helps to explain what that Lone Star state of mind is, or isn't."
