E. R. Bills joins us again with a collection of Texas tall tales.

texas-far-and-wide-cover-340wThe sheer volume of remarkable Texan exploits creates a dizzying tally for the proudest of its citizens. So it happens that inexplicable marvels slip past an entire state of storytellers and world-famous legends live as anonymous neighbors. Ever hear the story about the escaped ape in the Big Thicket? Or the “Interplanetary Capital of the Universe” that sat on the Gulf Coast? Does the cowboy hat that warmed U.S.-China relations ring a bell? From the Staked Plain Quakers to the Kaiser Burnout, this volume delves into some of the most fascinating chapters of overlooked Texas lore.

E. R. Bills received a BA in Journalism from Texas State University and does freelance writing for publications around the state. He is an author, screenwriter and free-lance journalist from Aledo, TX. He is the author of Texas Obscurities: Stories of the Peculiar, Exceptional and Nefarious, and The 1910 Slocum Massacre: An Act of Genocide in East Texas.
