From Lubbock with Love—The Lawrences’ Story:
With vistas that stretch from horizon to horizon uninterrupted by mountains or trees, Lubbock, Texas is a beautiful city with a charm that recalls the Old West. The nickname 'Hub City' gives the feeling of being surrounded by the old frontier of barren landscapes and cattle drives, of virgin soil and fresh opportunity, a place where the future is only what you make it to be. West Texas is often maligned with misstatements of quaint towns and nothingness. But out there is a beauty that needs little adornment, and with a population nearing 300,000 and a major university in its limits, Lubbock is more than a quaint town.
