This volume collects the best known or most representative or the most classically Texas traditional songs set in a social and historical framework.
BooknewsTexas put its stamp on the folk songs featured in this collection, but this study is not provincial; the songs came from everywhere and everybody, and were widely dispersed. Commentary on folk traditions and context, and the stories behind the songs, accompany music and words for over 80 songs. Originally published in 1983 (Dallas: E- Heart). Revisions for this edition are not identified. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
