    I would class this as a pretty good book. The photography in it is great. It is clear that Kathy Adams Clark, one of the co-writers is a very accomplished photographer. My one complaint about the book is the lack of detail about the towns that you visit. The writer points out some highlights that you can visit but there are no detail maps of the communities provided. Detail maps would have been helpful as a guide when you visit these communities.

    Have taken several of the scenic drives. Turned out just like book said. Can't wait to do more.

    Not a lot of detail, more kind of general information about places. Useful if you don't know Texas very well. Less useful if you're Texas born and bred.
