Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Especially for armchair (or throne room) travelers and trivia buffs, Uncle John has compiled over 300 pages of interesting stories, little known facts, and gossipy tidbits about the Lone Star State. This outsize state has no shortage of tall tales, colorful characters, and strange tourist attractions, and readers in any room in the house will be fascinated with the doings of Ima Hogg, George and George W., the Great Mosquito Festival, the first oil well, the Confederate Air Force, Larry McMurtry, LBJ, ZZ Top, Nolan Ryan, the Cadillac Ranch, the Dallas Cowboys (and Cowgirls), and much, much more.

Synopsis:

Howdy! As youre heading down the lonesome trail, theres no better pardner than Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader Plunges into Texas. Since 1987, the Bathroom Readers Institute has led the movement to stand up for those who sit down and read in the bathroom (and everywhere else for that matter). With more than 11 million books in print, the Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader series is the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the world.

Where else could you learn about roadkill cuisine, the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, and, lest we forget, the Alamo? This book is packed with trivia and tidbits that are easier to digest than armadillo chili. So gather round, folks, and read all about…

The true stories behind Black Gold and Texas tea (oil, that is)

Tuneful Texans: Willie, Waylon, and Janis

The Marfa Lights, “the Houston Bride,” and other Texas mysteries

Frances debt of honor to one Texas vintner

Rodeo Texas style: ropin, ridin, and wrasslin

And much more!

Synopsis:

How much do you know about the great state of Texas? Uncle John's Plunges into Texas is the who, what, why, when and where book about Texas. In the tradition of Uncle John's Bathroom Readers, we provide a compendium of interesting stories about the culture, people, places, history and folklore of Texas. Topics will include history, entertainment, politics, sports, geography, famous and infamous sons and daughters
