USA - Texas (Chapter)
This is the Texas chapter from Lonely Planet’s USA guidebook.
Cue the theme music, and make it something epic: Texas is as big and sweeping a state as can be imagined. If it were a country, it would be the 40th largest. And as big as it is geographically, it is equally large in people’s imaginations.
