Hale, Leon.

Easy going / Leon Hale ; illustrations by Ancel Nunn. - 1st ed. - Bryan, Tex. : Shearer Pub., 1983. - xii, 266 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.

Selected articles from the author's column in the Houston post.

"Hello, highway..." -- Home to the country -- Uncommon folks -- Old-timey talk -- Shirttail days -- Cornbread, beans, and banana pudding -- Tales passed along -- "Hey, Hemingway!" -- "This here's a paper man..." -- Fly balls and end runs -- Natural wonders -- Bad signs -- Blessed events.

Here the author goes 'on the road again', taking us with him across the Grand Prairie, the Piney Woods, the Lower Rio Grande Valley, and other Texas territory as he records the sights and sounds of the state's back ways. Most often the road takes him home to the country, and he lovingly portrays a rural lifestyle that is changing -- perhaps passing -- even as he writes.
