Abstract:

An American Original is the first major biography of one of the best-loved storytellers of the American Southwest, J. Frank Dobie, who, like the people he wrote about, came "out of the old rock" : independent, unpretentious, a diligent maser of his chosen craft. Lon Tinkle, for a years a well-known, widely respected author, book critic, and teacher, explores not only the personal flavor, integrity, and imagination that made Dobie the great chronicler, folklorist, and social historian of America's frontier heritage, but also the unique individuality of the man himself, with a face seemed carved in the hill country granite, and an appearance and personality that was as natural and suited to his life's work as the mesquite soil in Texas -- Book jacket.
