Folktales from the Helotes Settlement

John Igo

Folktales from the Helotes Settlement is a collection of personal memories from the Folklore Society’s longest active member, who first joined more than fifty years ago. Here we find legends, customs, and beliefs of the people of the Helotes Settlement near San Antonio. These stories capture the lore of a place similar to lots of other places—our places. They’re familiar to us all because, when we get right down to it, the Helotes Settlement is not very different from wherever we’re from.

JOHN IGO is an award-winning poet and author of many books and plays. He won an Emmy in 1985 for his writing for a one-hour documentary.
