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!

Amon Carter, Mr. Fort Worth, wouldn't let Dallas have the 1936 Texas Centennial Celebration without some fierce competition for the spotlight and the tourist dollar. Carter always did things in a big way - this explains the great and fun Frontier Centennial produced by Billy Rose, Mr. Broadway! Large format trade paperback - 8 1/2"W X 11"H. Bright, crisp and tight - appears unread.
