The spirit of this unique city in Texas is captured in Nawrocki and Lair's entertaining text and Langford's vivid color photos. The book is a thorough introduction to San Antonio, detailing the city's history, architecture, military tradition, and cultural events.

The authors outline the history of what is perhaps San Antonio's best-known landmark, the Alamo. They also highlight more recently developed points of interest in San Antonio, focusing on the River Walk, the development that turned the San Antonio River into a graceful, romantic, and historic centerpiece for the city. They recommend several of the city's many Botanical Gardens, the San Antonio Museum of Art, Brackenridge Park, and HemisFair Plaza. And they present San Antonio's varied menu of cultural opportunities, from a day spent at the rodeo or Sea World to an evening at the Grand Opry House or the San Antonio Symphony. Finally, the authors summarize the city's most popular fiestas and festivals. Throughout, Mark Langford's color photos celebrate the diversity and spirit of San Antonio.

Also recommended: Dallas: Shining Star of Texas, Landscaping with Native Plants of Texas and the Southwest, Texas Wildflower Postcard Collection.
