Book

There is an interesting book called "Goodbye to a River", by John Graves. It was published in 1959, and describes John's final trip down the Brazos River before it was changed forever by the dam at Lake Whitney. It is a good account of the land and the people surrounding the portion of the river just north of White Bluff.
