Blair Pittman
"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.

Mr. Pittman, I am race director for an ultra bicycle race called No Country for Old Men. http://dextooke.wix.com/ultradex#!ncom-home/c1nbj It is a 1000 mile bicycle race through the rugged Big Bend, Terlingua, Ft. Davis, Alpine, Marathon region. I am preparing a route book for the race that will include folklore of the region. One of the items I would like to include in the route book is about 'the dogs of Terlingua'. I would appreciate if you would share any folklore, tales, stories (If it ain't the truth, it oughtta be!). Thank you for your consideration. dextooke@gmail.com ultradex.net Dex Tooke 132 S.
