"Most importantly, The Broken Spoke is a quintessential American story. It is an authentic Norman Rockwell-like portrait of a strong, dedicated family whose work ethic, commitment to each other, and shared vision are now fueling a third generation. Having survived and thrived in an extremely tough business, the Whites have nurtured a Texas tradition. The Broken Spoke: Austin's Legendary Honky-Tonk is an essential companion to any student or enthusiast of Texas music and cultural history."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly--Southwestern Historical Quarterly
