Editor’s Note: Below is an excerpt from Margie Crisp’s new book, River of Contrasts: The Texas Colorado. The river runs 860 miles from just south of Lubbock, Texas, to the Gulf of Mexico. Crips follows the river its entire length. She writes about the river and she illustrates the book with her own drawings. A taste is below. To see more, go here.
