Legends of Texas by J. Frank Dobie( Book )
43 editions published between 1924 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 785 libraries worldwide
Legends of Texas is as sizable and varied as the state itself, and J Frank Dobie, perhaps the West's greatest historian, devoted years of his life to collecting and cataloguing its many stories. The stories in this first volume of the Pelican series are reprinted from Dobie's Legends of Texas, originally published in1924 by the Texas Folklore Society, and represent some of the enduring tales that have em embellished the history of the state. Dobie believed that worthwhile literature about his region must be derived from an understanding of its life, history, and lore. The legends represented in this work, and in the rest of the series, were regarded by Dobie as "the most influential in opening the eyes of people to the richness of their own traditions." Legends of the lost mines and buried treasures have stirred the imagination and quickened the pulse of man for centuries. These stories will have the same effect on any that reads them
