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!

On October 10, 2016, Dean Blair Pittman passed away in an Odessa, TX, hospital. His memorial service was held Oct. 22 in Alpine, TX, and†his wife, Jean Hardy Pittman, invited close friends and family to spread his ashes on his land in Terlingua. It was a beautiful day, and Blair's great granddaughters came from†Little Rock†and Georgetown. I will leave Blair's biographical info below. He was my brother,†my only sibling, and I was fortunate to grow up with a daredevil who sometimes allowed me to tag along.

We offer the work of Texas photographer and writer, Blair Pittman of Fort Worth. An award-winning photojournalist, first at the Denton Record Chronicle and later at the Houston Chronicle, Blair has had a distinguished career.

His work for National Geographic focused his keen eye on the wonders of the Texas Big Thicket, which became the subject of his first book, The Natural World of the Texas Big Thicket During his several years photographing and learning the wild variety of the Thicket, Blair was befriended by I.C. Eason. Blair's next book,I.C. Eason, King of the Dog People" recounted Easonís tales of his struggle for survival and to save his land. Texas Caves sprang naturally from Blairís lifelong fascination with caving. His National Speleology Society membership dates back to the early 50s!

Blair now lives in Alpine, Texas, with his wife, bookwoman Jean Hardy Pittman, owner of Front Street Books in Alpine. Blair has lived many years in the remote region of the Big Bend of the Rio Grande, many of those years in Terlingua, Texas. Tales from the Terlingua Porch, Vol. 1 was published in 2005, and late in 2009, the sequel was published, More! Tales from the Terlingua Porch, Vol. 2. Click on his photo, a book title, or on the Blair Pittman category for a listing of his books.
