Just As We Were: A Narrow Slice Of Texas Womanhood, Mackintosh, Prudence
3 Just As We Were: A Narrow Slice Of Texas Womanhood
Mackintosh, Prudence
University of Texas Press 1996 0292752008 / 9780292752009 1st Edition Hardcover As New in As New dust jacket 
In thirteen essays, the author offers a wry, insider's look at the coming-of-age of (the) blueblooded Texas woman as she lived it, from summer camp in the Texas Hill Country to sorority membership to the Junior League. When a Texas debutante bows her forehead to the floor in the famous "Texas dip," society columnists all across the country speculate interminably over what it is that sets Texas women apart. But really, how could they know? Even women born and bred in Texas can't always answer that question. Prudence Mackintosh comes very close to an answer, though, in this endlessly entertaining book. Writing with both a wry sense of humor and an insider's compassion, she offers us a fascinating look into the world of privileged, educated, well-married, well-connected, and mostly wealthy Texas women. A book about upper crust Texas women over an almost 20-year span. ; Southwestern Writers Collection Series Series; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 160 pages; 16660

The First Bulldogger, O'Brien, Esse Forrester
7 The First Bulldogger
O'Brien, Esse Forrester
San Antonio, TX Naylor Co 1961 2nd Edition Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
From the foreword: Nobody will ever know the real story of the Cowboy-West who doesn't know the story of Bill Pickett. His skin was black but his soul was white, and he was a man's man in a man's country. Memories of him as an individual, as a man, as a representative of his race, and as part of the warp and woof of the frontier, deserve to live on, not just as long as rodeoing shall endure...Mrs. O'Brien has, indeed, done a superb job in erecting this literary memorial to the days of the Cowboy-West and to a great cowpuncher. " In as close to new as a used book can be, there are no defects. ; B&W Illustrations; Small 8vo 7" - 8" tall; 58 pages; 29482
