BEST BOOK OF 2003!
Outdoor Writers Association of America Excellence in Craft Competition
The fish, birds, faces and places of the Texas coast. For the light-tackle fisherman, the wingshooter and the big game angler, Tosh Brown captures a cross section of a vibrant sporting lifestyle.
Whether it's the big open bays around Galveston, the jetties at Port O'Connor, the mangrove flats of the Coastal Bend, or the skinny waters of the Lower Laguna Madre, Tosh has hunted, fished and photographed a large portion of the state’s 370-mile shoreline, and he writes engagingly of the spell of these coastal waters. For the light-tackle fisherman, the wingshooter and the big game angler, Texas Tides captures a cross section of a vibrant sporting lifestyle--the fish, birds, faces and places that characterize a special region of the Lone Star State.
Brown's photos are a refreshing change from the typical outdoor shots. His composition is superb and his timing flawless...a pleasurable walk through a year on the Texas coast.
Bill Olson - Texas Outdoors Journal
It would be easy to call this a coffee-table book, but Texas Tides is more than that...more than tailing redfish and snaggle-toothed trout. This book is the Texas coast through all the seasons.
Ron Henry Strait - San Antonio Express News
The images are unforgettable--all 250 of them. The writing is reflective and lively. And the people are you and me.
