Roy Bedichek's beautifully written letters paint one of the best pictures of early 20th century Texas, especially Central Texas. The majority of the letters in this collection involve his good friends J. Frank Dobie and Walter Prescott Webb (a great historian of the western frontier). Other Texas literary and political giants make appearances as well. Known as the premier Texas naturalist, Bedichek's letters also contain lovely descriptions of the flora and fauna of Texas.
The correspondence of the Texas naturalist portrays his personality and life and includes discussions of ecology, literature, politics, and history
