"You're definitely from Texas if you can see yourself in Nick Anderson's wonderful cartoons and still laugh at who we are and where we come from. This book should be given to every new immigrant to our state so they'll know what they're in for."

In Texas if somebody's lucky right out of the chute we say "He always draws the best bulls." But, nope. Nick Anderson draws the best bulls. Best horses too. Best hats. Best hair . . .
