The Western Cross Timbers area comprises about million acres. It includes the wooded section west of the Grand Prairie and extends from the Red River southward to the north edge of Brown County. The landscape is undulating and is dissected by many drainageways including the Brazos and Red rivers. Surface drainage is rapid. Stuff about Geosciences. The Texas Coastal Zone is defined in the Bureau of Economic Geology's Environmental Geologic Atlas series as the area of land "from the inner Continental Shelf to about 40 miles inland" which includes "all estuaries and tidally influenced streams and bounding wetlands".Author: Dennis Trombatore.

Geology of Texas The Bureau of Economic Geology, established in as the successor to the Texas Geological Survey and the Texas Mineral Surve y, is a research entity of The University of Texas at Austin. It also functions as the State Geological Survey, a quasi-State agency, and the Bu reau Director serves as the State Size: KB. Geography. The Gulf Coastal Plain's southern boundary is the Gulf of Mexico in the U.S. and the Sierra Madre de Chiapas in Mexico. On the north, it extends to the Ouachita Highlands of the Interior Low Plateaus and the southern Appalachian northernmost extent is along the Mississippi embayment (Mississippi Alluvial Valley) as far north as the southern tip of Illinois.

The Brazos River, called the Rio de los Brazos de Dios by early Spanish explorers (translated as “The River of the Arms of God”), is the longest river in Texas and the 11th longest river in the United States at 1, miles from its headwater source at the head of Blackwater Draw, New Mexico to its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico with a 45, sq mi drainage basin. This book is more like an epic poem of Texas than a memoir or essay or novel. It is about a trip down the Brazos river, yes, but it treats the folks that have dotted the plains and hills of Central Texas much as it treats the river itself. John Graves writes beautifully, in a prose influenced but never overwhelmed by Ernest Hemingway/5.
