I have been fortunate enough to visit many of these destinations and Tui covers them very nicely. The book is meant as a travel guide and not as a history book, so most of the articles are brief and to the point. But she provides the reader (and the traveler) plenty of information to have a fascinating and wonderful offbeat road trip.
If you're looking for the spooky and the dead, she's got it in the book! If you're looking for the quirky, such as the small Eiffel Tower with the cowboy hat on top of it, you can find it there! How about buildings made out of petrified wood? They're in the book! Perhaps you're looking for a house made out of beer cans or a giant Jackalope, well if you have "Unexpected Texas" in your hand along with a map, you will get to find those locations without a hitch!
As I travel the country, I am always looking for guides the provide good and detailed local information. I look for guides to help me to find unique things that I may not of known about in little towns along the way. It is books such as this, they make travel easier and more fun!
I highly recommend Tui Snider's fun book on the unique, the quirky, the offbeat and even the spooky destinations that you can find in North Texas. It's a fun read, and an absolute must in your travel toolbox.
If you're going to visit Texas, then you need this book. Your trip will be enriched by visiting these out of the ordinary and off the beaten path attractions. You'll know more about the real Texas if you do.
If you've decided your never coming to Texas, then you're the one who needs this most. Tui will take you places most real Texans never find and you'll have so much fun, you'll decide you want to visit.
Having never been to Texas before, nor anywhere in the South, I was delighted to find myself at long last in the Lonestar State. Eschewing the obvious, cliche, and benign, "Unexpected Texas" is a great read for those looking to travel to, and within, the state that has, according to song and pop cullture, has become to home to many left-behind human hearts.
I now want to travel to Texas even more! Thanks to the author!
This gal is a world traveler who writes about the exotic places she visits, yet she looks at Paris, Texas with the same excitement she would muster for Paris, France. That’s not surprising, because “even Moses got excited when he saw The Promised Land.” However, Tui writes with playful love for the Lone Star State. The result is a quirky travel book that will enlighten even Native Sons and Daughters. Yes, friends, Texas wants Tui, and you might not know it yet but you want this travel book!
