Abstract:

An informal and conversational tone characterizes A.C. Greene's narrative in Texas Sketches. Whether we are reading about the origins of place names in the state of Texas and their development into communities, about the legend of Bonnie and Clyde, or about the beginnings of baseball in Dallas and Fort Worth, we know we are in excellent company-the company of one who knows a lot about his subject, and who graciously and generously shares that knowledge.
