Book Reviews minded man who supported the Civil Rights Movement and the integration of the University of Texas, where he taught English for many years. Steven L. Davis's warts-and-all biography of Dobie traces his evolution from a Vaquero of the Brush Country, the title of Dobie's 1929 debut, to Texas's leading man of letters in the mid-twentieth century. He wrote for several mainstream magazines of the era--Saturday Evening Post, American Mercury, and Holiday--and his column, "My Texas," appeared in the Dallas Morning News, the Houston Post, as well as Austin and San Antonio newspapers. His opinions also appeared in a series of radio programs throughout the state. He was as well-known as any Texan, not only in the Lone Star State but nationwide. An English professor at the University of Texas, where his wife, Bertha, often covered his classes when he collected folk tales, he also taught at Cambridge University in England during the latter days of World War II, an experience that led to his book A Texan in England (1945). In addition, he spent time in Germany at the end of the war and wrote a piece for National Geographic, "What I Saw across the Rhine"
