"Texas in her own words" is a delightful glimpse into the Texas psyche, and an explanation of the rugged individualism and unbending spirit still alive in the Lone Star State. Texans tell why they are the way they are, why Texas is a land of second chances, and why neighbors still help each other.

"Texas in her own words" is a collection of interviews with people from all walks of life - famous, not famous, blue collar, white collar, natives, and transplants - all expressing, in their own way, what makes Texas special and what it means to be a Texan. Photos that capture the essence of the land that was once a Republic are sprinkled throughout with factoids and history that reads like a romance.

"Texas in her own words" evolved out of Tweed Scott’s 4,000 mile quest to discover the heart and soul of Texas and in particular, what it is about Texans  (a “T” Chromosome?)  that makes them so proud.

The foreword is by Kinky Friedman and comments that "Above all, this book is entertaining and informative and as refreshing as it was to ladle a drink of cool water right out of the horse trough when you were a kid. Tweed Scott has done a great service to Texas."

Also included are interviews with Darrell Royal, Willie Nelson, Liz Carpenter and many more famous, infamous and not so famous Texans!

"Texas in her own words" has won 3 national awards: Gold Ben Franklin Award, Bronze IPPY award for creative non-fiction and it was the 1st runner upin the  USA Book News for creative non-fiction.
So whether you're buying this book for yourself (to find out what we Texans are REALLY all about), or you're giving it as a gift...you'll find the "soul of Texas" in these pages.
