A.C. Greene's 50+ Best Books on Texas

A. C. Green has left us, but his love of Texas, its various parts, its history and literature lives through his bright and lively work. Greene, in his literate and plainspoken way, gave us the great gift of a guide to Texas literature in 1982, "The 50 Best Books on Texas" and in the 1998 revised version, The 50+ Best Books on Texas". We at Texas Star Books try to keep copies from Greene's list on hand. Some are easier to find than others, so we may not have them all. To view his picks, click on the book title. Look for the book, itself in our inventory, too!

1 Blair Pittman The Stories of I. C. Eason, King of the Dog People
Denton, TX University of North Texas Press 1996 1-57441-012-1 / 9781574410129 First Edition Hard Cover As New Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Author
I.C. Eason grew up in the Big Thicket of Texas and raised his own family there in a culture that was dying as he lived it out. His response was to fight the lumber companies and and other interests that would destroy the land. At last the government stepped in to preserve the special ecosystem and made the Big Thicket National Preserve. His land is part of that preserve now - go visit there and see why some folks call it the "Holy Ghost" Big Thicket. Next best thing is to enjoy this book by Blair Pittman who recorded the stories as I.C. told them. Last section contains black and white photos that Blair, a noted photojournalist, took during the many years of his friendship with I. C. And just imagine what it must have been like 70 or 80 years ago. Book is new and dust jacket is bright and clean with slight creasing. And Blair has signed it for you on the half-title page.
