From the Publisher:

"A GOOD TALE tell't well, an' a bonnie tune ...and ye've a rare song. And fa widna sing it?" So said a Scotswoman, explaining what a ballad of American Indians and Texas Rangers was doing in the repertory of a Scottish traditional singer. The quotation furnishes a particularly appropriate title for this collection of Texas folklore, which features a symposium on "Folksong and Folksong Scholarship" by five men eminent in the field of folk music. Exploring changing approaches and attitudes in this exciting area of folklore are Tristram P. Coffine, secretary-treasurer of the American Folklore Society and author or editor of a number of books including The Ballad and the Critics; John Greenway, editor of the Journal of American Folklore and author of American Folksongs of Protest; W. Edson Richmond, editor of Midwest Folklore and teacher of courses on the ballad at the University of Indiana; D.K. Wilgus, author of Anglo-American Folksong Scholarship Since 1898; and George Foss, ethnomusicologist and member of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C.
