Sauceda, a Texas native, understands the trouble that "foreigners" from New York to California have comprehendin’ their Texan neighbors. This funny and engaging primer on how to be a Texan will help you get a better handle on the unique Texas history, language, culture, customs and do’s and don’ts―whether you’re movin’ there or just passin’ through.

Texas Blood: Seven Generations Among the Outlaws, Ranchers, Indians, Missionaries, Soldiers and Smugglers of the Borderlands
Holiday Gift Guide: "Texas Blood: Seven Generations Among the Outlaws, Ranchers, Indians, Missionaries, Soldiers and Smugglers of the Borderlands"

Here is an unsentimental, keenly insightful attempt to grapple with all that makes Texas so magical, punishing and polarizing. Here is a spellbindingly evocative portrait of the borderlands—with its brutal history of colonization, conquest and genocide; where stories of death and drugs and desperation play out daily. And here is a contemplation of what it means that the ranching industry that has sustained families for almost two centuries is quickly fading away, taking with it a part of our larger, deep-rooted cultural inheritance. A wholly original fusion of memoir and history—as piercing as it is elegiac—Texas Blood is a triumph.
