Gunnar Hansen, the actor who played terrifying villain Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, has died. The Icelandic-born actor, 68, died on Saturday of pancreatic cancer at his home in Maine, US, his agent said. The 1974 film depicts how five friends visiting their grandfather's country house are hunted by Leatherface and his family of grave-robbing cannibals.

In it he revealed that the inspirations behind the film had included the fairytale Hansel and Gretel.

If you are a fan of Texas, a REALLY big fan of Texas (as in a Texas native, or a transplanted Texan that misses home - or a non-Texan by birth that now lives here and loves it) - This book is for rare information lovers, outdoor enthusiasts who love to travel and explore / 'find' places that are little known. My understanding is that this is a 2nd version and compilation with some updates since it's first printing in the 1930's. The first version is almost as impossible to find as hen's teeth, and my feelings are that this will be a highly collected and sought after book within a matter of single digit years from now. Get it while you can - and a cost of about $65 here in November of 2007 is normal for the tome. Published by Texas A&M college.

Hopefully there will be a 2nd book to compliment the reprinted 'Springs of Texas' within a few years - one can only wait in anticipation. It appears that the least amount of information gathered is in the hill country region / central Texas. While this is a big area that is full of springs - the first book (no matter if it's the 1st or 2nd version) tells and shows you up front which counties were surveyed and how well they were surveyed. Around 3/4 of the counties in Texas are completely discussed in detail in regards to springs - however the 'project' is not complete at this time. I don't know if they are working on a 2nd volume currently or not, but I'm anxiously waiting for some kind of information that lets me know one way or the other. Without a doubt this needs to be completed, and it sounds like it's been on dozens of people's 'to do lists from hell'. Please, someone put it on their list so I don't have to - this is one of those things that needs to be immediately done, it's had to wait around 70 years so far and all we have is this first fantastic volume. It's also little known - but this book almost didn't get to be republished because the first version is so VERY rare - the author of the 2nd release goes into this in detail in the explanatory 'forward' of this 600 some-odd paged book.

NOT A BOOK FOR KIDDIES IN REGULAR SCHOOL. THIS IS A COLLEGE LEVEL BOOK (although there are bound to be many high schoolers that are an exception to the rule). Don't expect lots of nice, color photographs - black and white are all I've seen so far.

This book from the Texas A&M University Press is a second edition of the original version (1981) which has been out of print and very rare for many years. Helen Besse took up the challenge of locating a copy of the book, updating some of the material, and arranging for its reprinting. This book is literally the Bible for information about most of the past and current springs in 183 out of 254 counties in Texas. She is working on completing a Volume 2 which will include many springs in Central Texas which were not included in Volume 1. The book presents the results of many years of extensive research conducted by Gunnar Brune until his passing cut short the completion of all the springs in Texas.

Each spring's location, historical flow rate, elevation, geological and habitat characteristic, as well as interesting historical anecdotes by local citizens about the springs are given. Many excellent maps place the springs in a historical context from the 15th Century to the present. This is the first book one who is interested in learning about springs in Texas should read.

I discovered this book while i was staying in Alpine, Texas at the Sul Ross University Library. I remember it being an incomplete edition, perhaps a first edition. This was around May 19 to July 19, 1989 when i was staying/living there. I enjoyed Gunnar Brune's comments about the world situation. --gg

The best available information on the natural springs of much of Texas. The copy is in good shape except for unexpected old water damage.
