"If it Ain't the Truth, It Oughtta Be!"
Blair Pittman is an award winning photograher and writer whose works include The Natural World of the Texas Big Thicket, The Stories of I. C. Eason, King of the Dog People, Tales From the Terlingua Porch, and Texas Caves.
His photography has been published by Denton Record Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, National Geographic, Forbes, Texas Monthly, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and Smithsonian magazines, among others.
Now, he enters the world of folklore, writing the stories of his beloved West Texas. He's spent several decades telling and listening to tales on the Terlingua porch. Tales From The Terlingua Porch (in it's fifth printing!) is a collection of some of those tales, exactly the way he heard them -- with a wink and a grin.
