Kenneth Porter. There is another story pertaining to ghosts in
an old ranch house recorded by Ruth Dodson.
There are several other contributors to this fine book, which
is an accomplishment of the Texas Folklore Society. Even though
some of the material was gathered "far afield," it all fits into the
Texas pattern of living by giving new and fresh insights into
people, ghosts, animals, buried treasures, songs, and poetry. It
is the type of book that encourages one to record bits of folklore
that surround him, and his ancestral home or ranch. If one looks
closely enough along the ground on a hot summer day he may see
something moving; at first the sight may be hard to believe, for
there is a charming little animal, which one might swear is a
devil in disguise, having hidden all except his horns.
