Texas and Southwestern Lore

Edited by J. Frank Dobie

This Texas Folklore Society Publication is divided into two volumes of rich, Texan folklore. The first volume contains eight folk tales, varying from “Lore of the Llano Estacado” to “Myths of the Tejas Indians.” The second volume centers around the cowboy way of life and cowboy songs, such as “Songs the Cowboys Sing” and “Song of the Open Range.”

J. Frank Dobie (1888–1964) was an American folklorist, writer, and newspaper columnist best known for many books depicting the richness and traditions of life in rural Texas. In 1922, he became secretary of the Texas Folklore Society and held the post for 21 years.
