By Betty Dooley Awbrey and Claude Dooley with the Texas Historical Commission
Has this happened to you? You're crusing down a Texas Highway and, vvroom, you blast past a historical roadside marker, wondering what tidbit of local lore you may have missed. Well, wonder no more. With this latest edition of Why Stop? you can read and enjoy more than 2,500 of these historical markers without stopping your car, or even leaving your home. It's handy and simple to use because it lists alphabetically the hundreds of cities and towns nearest the markers and pinpoints each marker with specific highway and mileage information.
Texas' historical roadside markers let you relive the triumphs and tragedies that shaped this remarkable state - they let you stand where early settlers stood, see what they saw, and perhaps feel what they felt. This fourth edition preserves Texas' heritage by placing at your fingertips the descriptions and locations of the great, near-great, and not-so-great people and events that made the Lone Star State what it is today.
