"Strickland shows his strength through the diversity of the subjects he features...a colorful tapestry" - The Houston Post, October 27, 1991

"All of these folks, whether you like them or not, are a cut outside the ordinary. And when you listen to these people talk to Ron Strickland about their lives and you get to know them, you are reminded again of the vitality that is all around us all the time and sometimes even in the dullest of ourselves." Francis Edward Abernathy, Dallas Morning News, December 1, 1991.
