Brushy Creek (Montague County)

General Entry

Brushy Creek rises a mile north of Bowie in southwestern Montague County (at 33°35' N, 97°50' W) and runs southeast for twenty-two miles to its mouth on Sandy Creek, two miles west of Alvord in northern Wise County (at 33°21' N, 97°43' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, conifers, brush, and grasses.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
