“The Historic Trees of Texas”
Inspired by an old Texas Forest Service book, Ralph Yznaga located the most famous – and infamous – trees in Texas history. The resulting “Living Witness: The Historic Trees of Texas” (Texas A&M University Press, 2012) is a beautiful and authoritative introduction to our cultural and historical attachment to these magnificent beings.
