“Author Mark Rybczyk describes his book as “historical caulking”. This detailed book is at once a tourist’s friend and a native’s reference. Rybczyk says it was written for the curious native (whatever that is) and secondly for the newly arrived who may wonder “What’s so special about San Antonio?” Notice who it was written for first.
Every landmark, legend and myth of San Antonio is here – from the ugliest statue to the histories of the railroad stations. It’s a smorgasbord of overlooked and under-appreciated jewels from all over the city. The obligatory shrines and sites are here too – every one of them. Throughout the book’s pages Mark employs the rarest type of humor – humor with genuine affection.
Mark corrects the old saw that said San Antonio is “a small town wanting to be a big city.” It is, as he says, “A big town that desperately wants to be a small town.” With this book as your guide, it’s almost as though San Antonio gets its wish.”

“Great Read for Panning a Trip and While You Visiting San Antonio.
Used this book on my tablet to plan daily activities and learn about the city. I’m always interested in the culture, history and architecture of places I visit and this was a great find. Just going on a tour without background information would be boring but this book gives stories and facts that will help any visitor learn a great deal about San Antonio.” – Robert Fox
