Borderland‹‹ / ››Overview

Having grown up in north Texas, only the faintest hints of the culture which existed hundreds of mile to the south, but in the same state floated up to us. Once I got there, I realized that this place was something unto itself, a parallel world separate and different from the Texas I'd known.
