The paisano, or roadrunner, is the emblem of the Texas Folklore Society. However, Paisanos is not a bird book—it is a folklore miscellany, a collection of essays on folklore generally, but mainly on Texas folklore. Paisanos covers a wide field of folklore, from the academic to the popular, from the scientific to the mystical, and from studies of uses of the past to practices in folklore that are still very much a part of our lives.
