Show 203…For the Love of Texas: Betsy & George Christian


Joining me on The Sociable Homeschooler today are a couple of writers who live in Austin, Texas.  Betsy and George Christian have written two Texas History books that are as lively and irreverent as the characters found on their pages.  You’ll find men and women you’d like to meet and some you’ll be rather glad you didn’t!  If you think teaching History is dry these books are for you.  Betsy is a writer, public affairs consultant, and community volunteer. George, a fifth-generation Texan, practices law and teaches literature at The University of Texas at Austin. They have two school-age and two adult children.  Bring along a cup of tea and listen to why History is important and relevant to the world we live in today.  Even if you’re not from the Lone Star State you’ll want to know more about why Texans don’t like being told what to do after you’ve heard my conversation with George and Betsy.

I’d love to offer you a mug of P.G.Tips to fortify this time together and a chocolate biscuit to tickle your taste buds and thank you for staying, but you’re on that side and I’m here broadcasting live from East Texas, a small community on a golf course with lakes, where my blue eyed cowboy and are spending some time while God decides what to do with us next.  After the first break I’ll be talking to Betsy and George Christian, authors of, For the Love of Texas that make history bound off the page!   I’m all set so grab whatever it is you’re drinking and let me engage you with the latest and greatest from the household of the McNenys where our children talk to us all the time and give me a chance, every once in a while to remind them of some of what they learned in homeschool.  Are you ready?
