Singers and Storytellers

Edited by Wilson M. Hudson, Mody C. Boatright and Allen Maxwell

Most of the essays among the twenty-nine making up this collection salute taletellers, furnishing demonstrations by way of tall tales and short sayings, ghost stories and family stories, anecdotes of frontier preachers and hound dogs, and superstitions and folk medicine. Add tales of outlaws, buried-treasure searches, ethnic lore localized in the state, and many other subjects, and you have something to suit anybody's taste. A Publication of the Texas Folklore Society.

Wilson M. Hudson was the editor of the Texas Folklore Society from 1963 to 1971 after becoming associated with the Society when he began teaching at The University of Texas.

Mody C. Boatright (1896–1970) served as Secretary-Editor of the Texas Folklore Society for twenty years. He obtained his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Teas, where he taught for four decades. His contributions to folklore study and the Texas Folklore Society are innumerable.

Allen Maxwell was a former editor of The Southwest Review and former book editor for The Dallas Morning News.
