Format: Paperback
The enveloping pace of this book is wonderfully integrated with information. I was delighted to recognize authors I did not know had Texas roots. My out-of-state visitors also found authors they had read and loved, and in one instance, knew personally. It is time to recognize the past and present talent in Texas. This book's charm is not limited to Texans, or women only.

This book's snotty preface starts off denigrating Texas history by scorning the "so-called Texas Mystique" (of male writing that) "raises to sacred status such icons as the cowboy, the oil derrick, and the Alamo." The two editors stereotype writing about Texas history as being some kind of male perversion, privilege or perhaps delusion.
I am a published woman writer and a native Texan. I have published five articles in the last year on Texas history, so I resent their condescending attitude that articles about Texas history are beneath a women writer.
I wrote articles about The Yellow Rose of Texas at the Battle of San Jacinto; a cowboy; and oilfield adventures in the 1950s.
I write what I know and what I love. The editors of Texas Women Writers be damned.
It will be a long time before I even venture to read the articles in this book because I know they were chosen by narrow-minded, ill-informed editors.

This volume contains very interesting information on the Texas women writers. It is a good reference for facts about the many women from Texas who are published and acclaimed writers.
