This is Passport to Texas

For entities like Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine, it’s already the New Year. Editor Louie Bond tells us about some great reading to start your year off right.

It’s hard to believe it’s 2012 already, but we like to celebrate the New Year with some really great reads.

In January, it’s kind of cold—even in Texas—and people like to sit next to the fire and read a great story. And Russell Graves is providing one of the best this month. He’s what I like to call a triple threat. He makes great films, he takes incredible photography, and he’s such a lyrical writer. And this month he’s going to take a look at his part of the state—the Red River area—and talk about the history and the people and the culture of the red River.

And I think our readers will really love curling up by the fire with it.

Two other stories we’re going to feature from two of our other best writers…E. Dan Klepper shares a journey down in alligator country, and Kat Hunter will share her experiences participating in the E-Rock duathlon, which is a bike race and run up Enchanted Rock. So, when you’re ready to get out and start exercising this spring, you can take that as some great motivation.

Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine is on newsstands now.

That’s our show for today…we record the series at The Block House in Austin…Joel Block engineers our program…For Texas Parks and Wildlife I’m Cecilia Nasti.
