It is for good reason that J. Frank Dobie is known as the Southwest's master storyteller. With his eye for color and detail, his ear for the rhythm of language and son, and his heart open to the simple truth of folk wisdom and ways, he movingly and unpretentiously spins the tales of our collective heritages. This he does in Tales of Old-Time Texas, a heartwarming array of twenty-eight stories filled with vivid characters, exciting historical episodes, and traditional themes. As Dobie himself says: 'Any tale belongs to whoever can best tell it.' Here, then, is a collection of the best Texas tales--by the Texan who can best tell them.About the Author:
J. Frank Dobie was a folklorist and author of many books about Texas life and culture.
