Says Rusty via e-mail, "The book documents a period when Dallas changed from the Dallas of 'Big D (My, Oh Yes)' to the Dallas of Dallas. It includes almost 200 photos from the period, showing how Dallas transformed itself from a mid-tier prairie town of some regional importance into an international city, one of the nation's most populous, a center of trade, transportation, pro sports and popular culture."
It's available now on Amazon, which provides a generous sneak peek. Rusty also invites the Friends of Unfair Park to a book-release wingding September 10 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the NorthPark Neimans, during Fashion Night Out.
