About Dobie's Southwestern Lore

Southwestern Lore is now available as a free e-book at the UNT Digital Library and The Portal to Texas History.

Southwestern Lore is about as representative as such a miscellany could be. Bad men, razorbacked hogs, Mexican sheep-herders, treasure hunters, African Americans, cowboys both gringo and Mexican, plant life, songs, oil field, Indians—the four peoples that have mingled their lore in the Southwest, as well as a wide variety of occupations and natural elements—all find representation in the volume.
