Following up Texas, My Texas: Musings of the Rambling Boy with a second collection of essays, Lonn Taylorís Texas People, Texas Places: More Musings of the Rambling Boy again explores the very best of Texas geography, Texas history, and Texas personalities. In a state so famous for its pride, Taylor manages to write an exceptionally honest, witty, and wise book about Texas past and Texas present.
Texas People, Texas Places is a story of men and women and places that have made this state great. From a small-town radio host to tight-fisted West Texas ranchers, and even to Taylorís own family members, Taylorís subjects paint a profound and dynamic picture.
Lonn Taylor retired to Fort Davis, Texas, with his wife, Dedie, after a twenty-year career as a historian at the Smithsonian Institutionís National Museum of American History in Washington, DC. He received a BA in history and government from TCU in 1961 and did graduate work at New York University before returning to Texas.
