by Norm Evans
The great amount of respect, love, and admiration author Norm Evans feels for his grandfather, Shep Lubbock, is evident in his memoirs, My Last Look at Texas. In this far-reaching autobiography anchored by both his Texas roots and his grandfather’s solid presence, Evans paints a vivid picture of the loving bond of friendship forged between him and the man who raised him at an early age. The unique life experiences that unfold show the everlasting influence of Shep’s guidance, teachings, and high standards. Through childhood adventures to wartime military service to love and marriage, Evans never lost sight of the importance of his Texas communities, his family, and especially his grandfather as sources of renewal, regeneration, and grounding. My Last Look at Texas shares these special memories of an independent, gratifying, and full life and the man who made it possible.
