This is my second purchase of this collection. The last borrower didn't return it. Despite my hopes that it would be available on CD, I am still so pleased with the quality of the stories and the talents of both writers and readers that I will find a way to listen. These are 8 more stories from the Texas Bound series (I confess to liking the first collection best), and the stories are of the higest quality, although some are a bit less light hearted, grittier than the first series. They are true pictures of Texans, even though some stories take place elsewhere. No matter the situation or location, the essential nature of the Texan comes through over everything else. You might be surprised to learn who some of these Texans are. Overall, this is an excellent collection, and since it is short stories, one may listen to it on the way to work without being left hanging pulling into the parking garage. The entire collection of books and tapes is an essential addition to anyone's library, Texan or not, if one claims to have any literary discrimination at all. Or just if you like a well-written story. There are true gems in this collection, and even the ones that didn't appeal as much to me may strike a deep chord in someone from a different cultural background.
Pleasure derived from product: PURE
Now, if you could get the 3-set package (total of six tapes) available on CDs, that would be FANTASTIC!
Let me know when they're available and I'll buy several sets for Christmas presents.
