About This Item

Austin: University of Texas Press, 1958. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. The classic study of border life and song. Paredes, the leading folklorist of US-Mexico border region, tells the compelling story of Gregorio Cortez who killed a sheriff in self-defense and became a hero through dozens of ballads and songs. Still in print, in the Texas Classics series, after sixty years.

262 pages. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a good, rather faded dust jacket. To make up for that, this copy is inscribed by Paredes in 1959. Scarce signed.
