[EAN: 9780875651798], Neubuch, [PU: Texas Christian University Press,U.S.], History|United States|State & Local|General, Social Science|Customs & Traditions, BRAND NEW, Jerry Flemmons' More Tx Siftings, Flemmons J, "We have often heard of nowhere and supposed it somewhere in Texas."--"Galveston"" Times" "I went to Texas and ran wild on her prairies."--William Sydney Porter (O. Henry) "God made Texas when he was a small boy and wanted a sandbox."--"Folklore on the ""American""""Land" "A Texan ain't nothing but a human being way out on a limb."--John Wayne's line in "The Searchers" "We are a wordy bunch, always have been, and for almost two centuries, outsiders, intrigued by all the commotion down here in the Southwest, have come to inspect, dissect, cuss and praise. . . . Texas is a heroic story, the stuff of dreams and myths. Born of an impossible revolution, settled by peoples from somewhere else, Texas engendered the epic American notion of freedom and independence, of self-sufficiency and derring-do. Texas, above all else, has been a spiritual adventure--and the whole grand chronicle is there on library shelves, in newspaper clippings, old letters, written memories. There's little about Texas that hasn't already been said or written, and "Texas Siftings" is a kind of social catalog to much of it." So wrote Jerry Flemmons in the introduction to the first volume of "Texas Siftings," which has been read and treasured by Texans, expatriate Texans, and would-be Texans from coast to coast. Now he's back with "More Texas Siftings," an equally engaging and engrossing collection of stories both humorous and dramatic, letters, recipes, snippets of Texas language, outrageous praise and angry condemnation for the Lone Star State and its inhabitants.

1997, ISBN: 9780875651798

ID: 3879893

The rich diversity of our fall list indicates TCU Press's continuing commitment to quality regional publishing. We are proud to have two of Texas' best-known authors on our list. Gary Cartwright's Galveston -- too long out of print and now making its first appearance in a paper edition -- is a book much requested both on Galveston Island and throughout the state. C. W. Smith's novel, Understanding Women, goes beyond the usual coming-of-age fiction by capturing the contradictions and tensions of the 1950s in America and by dealing with the then-forbidden issue of abortion. In a different publishing climate, both books would have gone to commercial publishers. New York's loss is our gain. The funny, poignant memoir, In Jewish Texas, joins our two previous studies of the Jewish experience in Texas -- the more scholarly history, A Light in the Prairie: Temple Emanu-El of Dallas, 1872-1997, and the young-adult novel, The Treasure in the Tiny Blue Tin. All three books illustrate our interest in exploring Texas history and life.
