ABOUT HOMETOWN TEXAS
Hometown Texas is an exploration across miles and cultures, of well-traveled roads and forgotten byways, deep into the heart of Texas. Organized into five topographical, geographic, and cultural sections—East, West, North, South, and Central—three dozen stories and more than eighty complementary images create a parallel narrative to reveal what Brown has described as the “collective, various, remarkably complex soul that makes Texas unique.”

He has been a regular contributor to Texas Monthly and the Columbia Journalism Review and is the author of two books, including a biography of football hero Slingin’ Sammy Baugh. In 2009 he joined the Houston Chronicle, where his column “Native Texan” appears on Sundays.
ABOUT PETER BROWN
