About the Author

David Baird is a writer, editor, and translator based in Austin, Texas. He was born and bred in Houston, though he spent part of his childhood in Morelia, Mexico. He has contributed to several works about Texas and Mexico, including Frommer’s Mexico. Edie Jarolim was a senior editor at Frommer’s in New York before she indulged her Southwest fantasies and moved to Tucson, Arizona. She has since written about the Southwest and Mexico for a variety of national publications, ranging from America West Airlines Magazine, Art & Antiques, and Brides to the New York Times Book Review and the Wall Street Journal. Eric Peterson, a Denver–based freelance writer, has contributed to Frommer’s Colorado and has authored Frommer’s Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks. When he’s not on the road or writing about travel, Peterson covers Colorado’s business scene and Denver’s punk–rock underbelly. Neil E. Schlecht was reared in North Dallas. He attended Plano Senior High School, returned for graduate school at UT–Austin, and married a Texan. Now living in northwestern Connecticut, he is the author and co–author of more than a dozen travel guides, including Frommer’s Peru, Spain For Dummies, and Frommer’s Cuba. His Texas heroes are Lance Armstrong, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore.

This book offers great advice for travellers to Texas. It gives good ideas on what to do depending how long your stay is. I love Frommers for travel guides and this book keeps up their great standards.
I bought the book for Dallas but it offers more info than just this city.

Having used Rough, Lonely Planet and Eyewitness guides, it was a surprise that neither did a Texas volume. Frommer's was a new name to me, so I gave it a go. Written by a Texan, there was something of the resident's rose-coloured spectacles, but I found this a refreshing change from the jaded and trying-to-be-cool-but-coming-across-as-cynical view of other guide books. The maps are okay (we took satnav too) and doubled up with local street maps. Slight weak point of the book; it's not exhaustive, sometimes it's helpful just to have a 'don't bother with this town' comment, ie for Abilene. Frommer's pointed us in the direction of the highlights in terms of galleries, two places to eat and a couple of awesome hotels; it also recommended a stay at a dude ranch - we are game for anything and it was a fantastic idea, something we would have probably avoided otherwise. Y'all have a good day now.
