Texas

Those who are proud to call Texas home can attest to the fact that “everything’s bigger” there, while others claim it’s also better. The Lone Star state has certainly seen its share of history being made.

Texas is home to a ranch so large that it’s bigger than the entire state of Rhode Island – the famous King Ranch. Texas produces more wool than any other U.S. state and has the largest herd of whitetail deer in the nation. It was even an independent nation from 1836 to 1845.

However, you can come to know Texas more intimately through exploring its history and culture via local interest literature.
