This book has a little on history of each part of the state of Texas. It has a lot on the diverse cultures found across the state. Photos probably account for 30% of the space in the book.
Mary needs to research before making driving statements. It is perfectly legal to move over to an improved shoulder to let someone pass according to state law in Texas.
Pretty interesting book otherwise.
