The theme of the cowboy and the West is further pursued in “The Cowboy Code,” by Paul Patterson, “The Cowboy Enters the Movies,” by Mody Boatright, “Billy the Kid, Hired Gun or Hero,” by John O. West, and “Laureates of the Western Range,” by Everett A. Gillis. Next comes William D. Wittliff’s collection of passages on folklore from Dobie’s writings.
The second half of the volume includes the history of two folktales, a strange religious sect, tales of East Texas fox hunts, an old-time charcoal burner, poke sallet, and folksongs, among others. Includes a special portfolio of J. Frank Dobie photographs.
