The author of Jerry Flemmons' Texas Siftings, More Texas Siftings, Amon!, Plowboys, Cowboys and Slanted Pigs, the one-man play O Dammit!, a coffee table book on Texas, and Fodor's Guide to the Caribbean, he was writer-in-residence for Tarleton State University and made his home in Granbury, Texas.

It may be that Flemmons writes best of the small and common bits of Texas.

In "And Flights of Angels Sing Thee to Thy Rest," the essay which opens this compelling collection, Jerry Flemmons displays an uncommon sense of both history and fun. When it was announced that angels would adorn the facade of the magnificent hall to be built in Fort Worth for the performing arts, the columnist, intrigued by the incongruity of angels in Cowtown, demanded, "Where in the hell did those angels come from?" . It may be that Flemmons writes best of the small and common bits of Texas.

very interesting and sometimes humorous history of the great state of Texas.

Light hearted Texas mixed with serious and heartbreaking are in Jerry Flemmons's Texas Siftings. The articles, written from 1836 to 1991, were "sifted" from many Texas publications. In his collection he put part of a letter from Davy Crockett, many cowboy poems, and included an article about The Killing of Judge Roy Bean's Pet Bear. There are also instructions on How to Skin a Buffalo and how to make baked possum and red eye gravy. In New London, Texas, approximately 194 students were killed when a gas line under the school exploded. Reported by Walter Cronkite, this tragedy is one remembered in Texas Siftings. I really liked this book for the great variety of stories about Texas.
