  • GHOSTS
  • The Ghost on Highway 281 by C.F. Eckhardt
    "...About a year and a half later John was in the old Jailhouse Barber Shop in Blanco, and he mentioned seeing the guy with the knife alongside 281. "Oh," somebody said, "you saw Lackey's ghost." ... As it turned out, John wasn't the only person who'd seen Lackey trying to hitch a ride north toward Johnson City. A lot of people were aware of him. Truckers don't like to drive that stretch on fall nights..."
    HISTORY
  • San Antonio's Blue Book by C.F. Eckhardt

  • The Story of our Texas' German Pilgrims:
    or Death March to Comal County

  • The Ranger's Creek of Gold by C.F. Eckhardt
    In the first chapter of what was the treasure-hunter's bible for many years, J. Frank Dobie's CORONADO'S CHILDREN, there is a story called "The Rangers' Creek of Gold." Dobie told this tale as 'once upon a time a long time ago in a land far away.' Yet in the story there are, if you read it critically, enough clues to tell you what time of year it occurred, where in Texas it occurred, approximately what year it occurred, and the exact location of the creek of gold.
  • FOOD
  • National Dish of Texas by C.F. Eckhardt
    Chili con carne is the national dish of Texas. It was invented in Texas by Texas natives-literally-and it's made right only in Texas...
