"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.

Blair recovering from his accident and doing well!

by Jon Blackmon on 09/10/11

Blair Pittman was seen recently on the Porch, and he looked good!  As most of you know, he had an auto accident and was critical for months.  He had a "Halo" to help repair his broken bones, and went through a rehabilitation process to learn to walk again.  His wife, Jean, has been an angel.  We love you Blair, good to see you back in circulation!
