Hill Country Tour de Force
By Susan L. Ebert
Author john graves and photographer Wyman Meinzer bring us Texas Hill Country (University of Texas Press, $39.95), on the heels of their successful collaborations on Texas Sky and Texas Rivers. Graves, whose life’s work includes the classic Goodbye to a River, is a former president and fellow of the Texas Institute of Letters. Meinzer was named Texas State Photographer by the Texas Legislature. Both Graves and Meinzer are long-time contributors to Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine.
Says Meinzer about this most recent endeavor: “To work again with my friend and master author John Graves was like revisiting my greatest dream. As always, John is a living lesson in history and a consummate gentleman. My life has been enriched by our time together.”
Every Texan will delight in sharing their vision, and sense the joy in their partnership.
