Publication of The Texas Folklore Society #XXXV

Variety and richness are indeed found in this Publication by the Texas Folklore Society. The first folk type to appear in the book is the hunter, in Francis Abernethy’s account of the East Texas communal hunt, which he sees in relation to man’s ancient hunting habits. Folk medicine is the topic of the second article, in which Doctor Paul W. Schelder tells about his discovery of the cures used by some of his patients in Denton. In all, this volume consists of sixteen folk tales, with topics ranging from traditional ways of doing things to popular entertainment.
