Comments

From the introduction: "If, as Plato said, poverty be the parent of meaness and viciousness, then the wonder is that Texans as a people have any reputation remaining for generosity and friendliness. For Texas was planted in poverty, nurtured in rock-hard soil, and has endured and matured on alternating diets of plenty and famine . . ." ¶ From the library of David & Valerie Belch.
