“Lively. . . . Miller’s is the rare book that one might wish a little longer.” Bookforum

“Dallas is really at the center of our current political state. Or at least that’s what the historian Edward H. Miller argues in his book Nut Country. . . . Anyone with a passing interest in how Dallas was formed, and how Dallas, in turn, has helped form the country, should read this book.” Dallas Morning News
