The Nature Writers of Texas

The best nature writing from the newspaper, magazine, blog and book authors of the Lone Star State . . .

Welcome to The Nature Writers of Texas

This actually started as a static website for archiving the works of various nature writers who publish in Texas newspapers and magazines. The idea was first broached by Burr Williams on the Texas Birding listserv TexBirds. A major server crash left the site stranded in cyberspace, and the situation languished for a few months.

I have decided to replace the old site with this blog, which will henceforth publish these writings as they are forwarded by the writers. The articles are then automatically archived, and links will be posted in the sidebar to various authors' bios and works.

So, we hope you enjoy the best of Texas Nature Writers. And if you are a publishing writer we strongly urge you to give us a shout -- we'd be happy to archive your stories here for all to see. Contact Tony Gallucci at milkriver for more information.

Please note that all copyrights are held by the individual authors -- they should be contacted directly for permission to reprint.

Hi there...I am looking for help, and since your writers seem very familiar with nature, I thought I would give it a shot. I may be the only person in the world who is afraid of geckos, but nevertheless, I am. I have tried every source I can think of to get help in...not killing them...just making them want to stay away. The baby ones continue to get into my house somehow, even though there seem to be no bugs inside. I don't know if any of your writers are doctors, but I'm on the verge of a heart attack...HELP!!!

Dear Sir/Madam.

I am e-mailing you to let you know that this year I am starting my own tour company and will be following
in the footsteps of the Scottish nature author Gavin Maxwell, famed for the book Ring of Bright water.

Our tour takes you to the west highlands of Scotland and visits Eilean ban and a walk to Sandaig
where Gavin Maxwell wrote his inspiring book.
