From the Back Cover
THE LEGENDS OF TEXAS are as sizeable and varied as the state itself, and J. Frank Dobie, perhaps the West's greatest historian, devoted years of his life to collecting and cataloging them.
The stories in this first volume of the Pelican series are reprinted from Dobie's Legends of Texas, originally published in 1924 by the Texas Folklore Society, and represent some of the enduring tales that have embellished the history of the state.
Dobie believed that worthwhile literature about his region must be derived from an understanding of its life, lore, and history. The legends in this work, as well as those in Volume II of this series, were regarded by Dobie as "the most influential in opening the eyes of people to the richness of their own traditions."
Legends of lost mines and buried treasure have stirred the imagination and quickened the pulse of man for centuries. These will not fail to do likewise.
