Description: Originally published in 1997, Dennis Roberson's Winning 42 was an overnight best-seller and an instant classic Texana volume. Now a new volume is available in time for holiday giving.

You don't have to be a Texan to play 42, but it helps. Throughout the state -- on front porches, under shade trees, at family reunions, church socials, and senior citizen's centers -- you can see the old, the young, and the in-between playing this unique domino game, the National Game of Texas.

The new edition adds a chapter on celebrities who share their secrets of winning. From Laura Bush and Ann Richards to Robert Earl Keen and B. J. Thomas, Texans love to play 42. Texas stars such as journalist Bill Moyers and astronaut Robert Crippen cite the game as an important influence in their early lives.

Moyers explains that one doesn't learn to play 42, it's simply in the DNA. But Roberson's strategies give the reader definitive winning moves for beginners and experts alike. In addition to illustrations showing dominoes in play, the book is also full of the folklore and popular culture that has surrounded the game throughout its 113-year history.
