A Publication of the Texas Folklore Society. The title of this volume comes from an essay by Hugh M. Taylor, “Spur-of-the-Cock: Hero of the Mayo Indians.” Also included is an old New Mexican folk play, “Canto del Niño Perdido,” edited by Mary R. Van Stone and E. R. Sims, followed by folk names of Texas cacti, cats and the occult, and old-time African-American proverbs by J. Mason Brewer.
