Format: Paperback
Beautifully written stories of love, loss and triumph. Mary's style of writing takes you with her as she tells the tales of these brave and tolerant Texans. When your finished reading it, leave it in your guest bedroom along with a box tissues. A great book for Texans living away from home.

Format: Paperback
When she was nine, Mary Rogers wrote a short story. By the time she was nineteen, she knew that she wanted to be a storyteller, not of stories she made up, but those of real, living, breathing, hurting, happy people.

She did. As a columnist and later feature writer for the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, for almost two decades Rogers learned and shared the stories of Texans. She honed her skills at getting people to tell her their stories by showing her their hearts, their deepest insides. She calls it "dancing naked." And she's good, mighty good, at getting people to dance that dance.

This collection of her feature stories and column reveals a great deal about her subjects and even more about life in Texas.

There is the Texas two-step from up in the Panhandle where Gary Gardner took on the Swisher County justice system when forty-six of his neighbors (thirty-nine African-American) landed in prison on trumped-up drug charges. He didn't stop until he had gained the nation's eye and his neighbors' freedom.

Over in Burleson, near Fort Worth, Dashelle Murrin didn't let a nearly fatal run-in with an eighteen-wheeler slow down her dance. She had an extra quarter inch tapped onto one of her cowgirl boots, grabbed her make-up bag and went right back to the horses and husband she loves.

And in the Highland Park neighborhood in Dallas, Howard Cobb, who is over ninety, has spent the last sixty years in a slow but steady routine with his son Freddie who faces both mental and physical challenges, a "forever child." Send a flower to Howard every Father's Day!

Rogers also calls up the exotic tango between the once-notorious Priscilla and Cullen Davis. Davis was accused of murdering Priscilla's daughter and wounding his ex-wife's lover. He walked away.
