The case of "Superman the Bull Wins $8.5 Million" is told by John OQuinn of Harris County; Harold Nix reveals the biggest case of Morris County, "The Forty Year Toxic Cloud;" Roy Barrera, Sr., Bexar County, reveals a famous criminal case "A Black Eye or Russian Roulette?;" and Frank Branson of Dallas County even received the cufflink shooters that were worn in the Jack Ruby trial.

Texas is the largest state in the continental U.S., and it also has big vistas, big ideas -- and some very big personalities. From Jim Bowie at the Alamo to George W. Bush at the State Capitol, Texans take their freedom and justice seriously. Since the days when early settlers needed protection from hostile Indians and warring Mexicans, Texas lawmen have risen to the occasion. They may not carry six-guns anymore, but they still loom large in the legal landscape.

Here's a book featuring many of the biggest and boldest Texas justice-keepers, lawmen and women, and the buildings in which they work. The grand courthouses of Texas's 254 counties represent some of the finest examples of Art-Deco and Beaux-Arts architecture in America. Both stylish and informative, the book brings together the people, the buildings, and the great stories they both have to tell.

Like her previous books, TEXAS WOMEN and TEXAS MEN, sixth-generation Texan author Martana highlights the people of her State with an intimacy that brings their personalities and their stories to life. Nearly 100 counties are represented, and each has its own colorful story, conveyed by one of its most colorful citizens.
