In this Book

summary
This Publication of the Texas Folklore Society examines how Texans of many races have shaped their lives and shaped the state. Among the pages are backward glances to post-war life in East Texas, descriptions of early recreations and games that children have played from pioneer days to the present, a friendly account of the hill people near Austin, a reminiscence of ranching life among the early Spanish Texans in the West. There are stories long current among the people, a celebration of frijoles, and a recollection of the wonders of yogi oil.
