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
