Wild Texas contains more than 150 full-color photographs of Texas’s natural wonders. Author and photographer Richard Reynolds traveled thousands of miles to give us this photographic portrait of the six diverse and unique natural areas of our state.Texas is often thought of as the state with wide open spaces, but it is much more. It is mountain peaks that tower 9,000 feet in the west and the sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast in the east. It is stunning wildflowers of the Hill Country and the big skies of the panhandle. It is the acres of pine forests of the Piney Woods region and the rainbow palette of mountains and desert of Big Bend.Wild Texas is the natural beauty of our state- it is what we see, hear, and feel as we paddle the spring-fed Guadalupe River above Canyon Dam, hike the Ranchioeras Loop Trail at Big Bend Ranch State Park, look across the limestone cliffs that tower above pristine emerald pools of the Pecos River as it winds its way toward the Amistad International Reservoir. It is the pounding of a powerful surf on the Padre Island National Seashore, the history experienced through the Petroglyphs that cover the walls of Painted Canyon. It is that still, golden afternoon when you know the Lone Star State is where you’re meant to be.
