My only complaint is that there is not more to read.

Hopefully, for Texas' greatest writer we will one day have a multi-volume, well-annotated, complete collection of everything he has written. He is too modest to include it all here.
Great read about Texas. Should have ended before the section on "elsewhere". Stopped reading after Aztec Dog.
