“The Texas landscape has always been a place of unparalleled beauty, yet during settler days, our lands could also be uninviting and even dangerous to man or beast. Through dedication and sheer perseverance, our forefathers managed to tame this great land and turn it into something that not only retained its raw beauty, but grew into something more: a place of great bounty and unchecked opportunity for all” – Governor Rick Perry, United States Secretary of Energy
