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.
