Abstract:

This album should please every Texan, young and old, who has a sense of history as well as a sense of humor. For here is a pictorial reminiscence of the Lone Star State in its salad days, a graphic chronicle of the twentieth century before it lost its innocence in World War II. Cartoonist Bill McClanahan is no formal historian, of course. For one thing, he is more interested in the small details of everyday life that the great economic and social issues of the times. Then, too, he isn't serious enough to be an Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., or even a Will Durant. Besides, his view of the past is frankly biased: he looks on bygone days in his native state with all the warmth and affection one feels for an old departed friend. These cartoons have been gleaned from the best of his famous Remember? series, which he began in the 1950's in order to provide the pressures of the post-war years--an era noted for its "confrontations," "escalations," and "demonstrations." Since he first introduced the feature, McClanahan has received literally hundreds of requests from readers asking when the cartoons would be available in book form; and in answer to those vocal admirers, and to the thousands and thousands of silent ones, here is...Texas, the way it used to be!--Cover
