In this Book

summary
Some people are still working stock, building chimneys, making syrup, curing warts, and witching water the same way their fathers and grandfathers did a hundred years ago. This Publication of the Texas Folklore Society is a collection of essays on some of the olds ways—the customs—still practiced in Texas. It is not an exercise in nostalgia, but a look at practical ways of dealing with problems of survival and coping with nature and people. This is a collection of essays about Texas folklore and customs, including information about cooking, woodworking, farming, festivals, folk music and other Texas folklore.
