The editors at Texas A&M Press have brainstormed a catchy new name for my new travel guide to Southwest Texas. How do you like From the Frio to Del Rio: Travel Guide to the Southwestern Hill Country and Lower Pecos ? I really had not put much thought into the title, even though that’s pretty important, so I was counting on the editors to come up with something more compelling. I think they’ve done that very well! What to name the area from Utopia to Barksdale was also a quandary for me. I’ve gone back and forth between “Southwestern Hill Country” and “Western Hill Country” several times–having to change the text each time, of course! I’m glad the title specifically designates the Lower Pecos because the area is so special in so many ways, yet a lot of people don’t know much about it.
