The Texas Almanac has been the ultimate resource on life in Texas since it was first published in 1857. The Texas Almanac 2008-2009 is printed in full color on 50-lb glossy stock, the perfect format for displaying color photos of Texas from the Gulf of Mexico to the West Texas mountains. Color relief maps of the state and each of its 254 counties show topography, major and minor roads, waterways, parks and other attractions. Each county map is accompanied by a profile outlining that county's history, physical features, recreation, population and economy. Special features in the 64th Edition include: an overview of archeology in Texas with a list of unique sites to visit and a map to locate landmarks and museums; a history of stagecoach travel on the Texas frontier, important in transporting people, mail and goods across the state; a look at the Civilian Conservation Corps in Texas, which developed 56 state, national and local parks between 1933 and 1942; a history of Cajuns in Texas, where they came from, where they settled and their unique contributions to Texas; and a history of minor league baseball in Texas.
