Award-winning translator and author David Bowles brings together twenty-five darkly memorable stories of the southern borderlands of Texas, retold in his unique voice. Ranging from the age-old folktales heard at his grandmother's knee to urban legends collected down the years, each of these narratives is brought to stunning visual life by artist JosÚ MelÚndez. An appendix classifies the pieces and enumerates motifs.

Review:

"Perhaps the best thing about this collection of short stories is that Bowles manages to deliver a wide array of styles. From vignettes that read like short stories about love gone wrong, to pieces that seem to have been pulled from a night spent telling scary stories around a fire, there's something for everyone here. In fact, despite the academic touches (something that comes accompanied by eight pages of notes that's proof of the work that went into the book and an invitation to explore further), there are passages that will even satisfy those who enjoy their folklore with a touch of horror."--Verbicide
