Each year, more than two million visitors enjoy the attractions of the Western Hill Country, with Uvalde as its portal, and the lower Pecos River canyonlands, which stretch roughly along US 90 from Brackettville, through Del Rio, and on to the west. Amistad National Recreation Area, the Judge Roy Bean Visitors' Center and Botanical Garden, Seminole Canyon State Park, and the Briscoe-Garner Museum in Uvalde, along with ghost towns, ancient rock art, sweeping vistas, and unique flora and fauna, are just a few of the features that make this distinctive section of the Lone Star State an enticing destination.

Now, veteran writer, blogger, and educator Mary S. Black serves up the best of this region's special adventures and secret treasures. From the Frio to Del Rio is chock-full of helpful maps, engaging descriptions of points of interest, colorful photography, and tips on where to stay, what to do, and how to get there. There's even a trivia quiz to keep travelers entertained and informed while en route. This guide to what could be called the Texas "Hill Country-Desert Trail" is your indispensable travel companion for unforgettable discoveries in wide open spaces.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Next time I go to see the rock art--and I surely will, for I do not know any place more magnetic than the Lower Pecos Canyonlands--I'll be quick on the draw with this splendid guidebook. It is a vital resource for those who would dare to venture into this stark, strange, and undeservedly little-known region of Texas."-- C. M. Mayo, author of Miraculous Air: Journey of a Thousand Miles through Baja California, the Other Mexico
