A Single's Guide to Texas Roadways

By H. Claire Taylor

Released: 2016-02-14
Kindle Edition (252 pages)

A Single s Guide to Texas Roadways
 
Product Description:

Road trips, feral hogs, and humiliation. Everything’s bigger in Texas.

Ride along with Natalie, a bitter-before-her-time city girl, as she travels from one side of the Lone Star State to the other, searching for the One and gathering important travel tips every single gal should know before setting out alone on the open road.

While trekking between towns presents its own set of difficulties, dating isn’t any simpler. With so many Texan men to choose from, how is Natalie supposed to decide which is the one for her? And more importantly, which one is the least likely to murder her when she lets her guard down?

As she strikes one name after another from her list of prospects, her hope of finding Mr. Right slowly fades.

Can she find the elusive right-guy-right-time scenario before her travels leave her lugging around too much extra baggage?

“Go buy this book if you like reading and laughing and heart-wrenching good stories. Seriously.” - Amazon Reviewer

Product Description:
Designed as a light-weight and field-portable reference booklet, Wild Edible Plants of Texas highlights the Lone Star State's most important edible wild plants. To the point and understandable, this guide best suits the prepper or outdoor enthusiast in need of a salient introduction to the field. No fluff. Just the facts.

Each of the 60 (actually 62) entries are comprised of the following sections: Range and Habitat, Edible Uses, Medicinal Uses (when applicable), Cautions, and Special Notes. Both common and scientific names are listed. Over 100 color photos assist in identification and in many cases showcase each plant's choice edible part. Every profile is assigned a Texas-only location map and a seasonal guide on the best harvesting time. A general index is included as are a dozen photos of the state's poisonous plants.

Some of the entries have a greater-than Texas range, however many are uniquely Texan, and hail from a specific region. West Texas' Chihuahuan Desert, the Hill Country of the Edwards Plateau, the Plains of the Panhandle, and the Piney Woods and Swamplands of the state's Coastal Plain all are botanically represented.

The following plants are covered: Agave, Algerita, Amaranth, Arrowhead, Bastard Cabbage, Black Cherry, Blackberry, Bumelia, Cattail, Cholla, Dayflower, Devil's Claw, Dewberry, Dock, Dwarf Palmetto, Elder, Flameflower, Graythorn, Ground Cherry, Hackberry, Hickory, Indian Strawberry, Jewels of Opar, Kudzu, Lambsquarters, Lemonade Berry, London Rocket, Lotus, Madrone, Mallow, Mesquite, Mulberry, Nettle, Oak, Passionflower, Pawpaw, Pecan, Pennywort, Persimmon, Pokeweed, Prickly Pear, Purslane, Redbud, Rusty Blackhaw, Sorrel, Sow Thistle, Spring Beauty, Sugarberry, Thistle, Turk's Cap, Walnut, Wild Gourd, Wild Grape, Wild Oats, Wild Onion, Wild Plum, Wild Sunflower, Winecup, Yaupon Holly, Yellow Nutsedge, Yucca (Fruit), and Yucca (Stalk).

Product Description:

Much has changed in the area of school law since the first edition of The Educator's Guide was published in 1986. Successive editions grew incrementally longer to keep abreast of legal developments. In this new eighth edition, the authors have streamlined the discussion by pruning older material and weaving in new developments. The result is an authoritative source on all major dimensions of Texas school law that is both well integrated and easy to read.

Intended for Texas school personnel, school board members, interested attorneys, and taxpayers, the eighth edition explains what the law is and what the implications are for effective school operations. It is designed to help professional educators avoid expensive and time consuming lawsuits by taking effective preventive action. It is an especially valuable resource for school law courses and staff development sessions.

The eighth edition begins with a review of the legal structure of the Texas school system. As Chapter 1 notes, education law is a complex interweaving of state and federal constitutional, statutory, administrative, and judicial law. It is important to understand the nature of the system before reading other sections.

Successive chapters address attendance and the instructional program, the education of children with special needs, employment and personnel, expression and associational rights, the role of religion in public schools, student discipline, open meetings and records, privacy, search and seizure, and legal liability under both federal and Texas law. In addition to state law, the book addresses the role of the federal government in school operation through such major federal legislation as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

Statute and case references are kept as simple as possible, and a complete index of case citations is included for those readers who wish to consult the cases themselves. The appendices describe how case law is reported and where to find it, along with a glossary of legal terms and a listing of other sources on Texas school law.
