SKU: 9780890963609 Category: Tag: Product ID: 1006721


Now in its sixth printing, the first of Elton Miles’s folklore collections tells stories as inseparable from the region as the Rio Grande itself. The tales cover supernatural phenomena such as the Marfa lights and water witching, murders, feuds, and lost treasures. Together, they reflect the rugged land where Anglo, Indian, and Mexican cultures meet. Elton Miles is professor emeritus at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas.
