      As a life long East Texan, this book absolutely fascinated me The Neches River, wholly contained in the eastern Pineywoods bordering Louisiana, has become a fascination of mine in recent years Van Dellen s photographs are beautiful, detailed and really capture a wild place, which is part of the reason this book was put together in an attempt to get a wild river designation for the Neches from the federal government Francis Abernethy s contribution isn t to be shirked at He compiled a lot of the [...]
