Written by author Tab Lloyd, Free Texas is the only book on the market dealing specifically with the many free attractions Texas has to offer. Geared toward families,
Free Texas lists over 120 places to visit. Museums, farms and gardens, industrial tours, and military attractions are all included in the book.
Each attraction is given at least an entire page which lists the attraction's address, phone number and web site. Also included are in-depth descriptions of what visitors
can expect to see at each location. The histories behind each attraction are also included, making Free Texas an invaluable educational resource for anyone who wants
to learn more about the Lone Star State.
Stories are everywhere--and in everything. While some folks have put a price on their stories, chances are, good stories do not cost much. And the best ones? They are freely given. When I asked Cile Ambrose why she offered her museum, the Central Texas Area Museum in Salado, free to the public, she answered quite plainly, as if I should already have known. "Because Texas IS free. We're a free state, we have a free spirit, we are a free country, we're a free people, and when you have a good thing, we want to share it with everyone. How can you put a price tag on that?" It's true--when you have a good thing, chances are, you just want to share the story, the excitement, the opportunity for knowledge. So this book is full of people just like Cile, who want to share their lives, stories and history with others, just because.
