Almost twenty years after its first publication, the University of Texas
Press has produced a paperback of Americo Paredes's A Texas Mexican
Cancionero: Folksongs of the Lower Border. Manuel Pefia has provided a new
foreword for the book, which the Journal of Mexican American History con-
cluded "should be read by everyone interested in Mexican American his-
tory." Another recent UT Press publication, Jane Manaster's The Pecan
Tree, provides a brief but highly engaging survey of the "natural history,
cultivation, and uses" of this most Texan of trees. The volume includes
beautiful color plates and intriguing photographs. To order, contact the
University of Texas Press, P.O. Box 7819, Austin 787 13-7819, telephone

Association member David B. Gracy II has authored a pamphlet enti-
tled This Best But Last Chance: Representative Bill Daniel's Fight for a State
Courts and Office Buildings in Texas, 1949-1954, published by the Gradu-
ate School of Library and Information Science at UT Austin. Gracy, the
school's associate dean and Governor Bill Daniel Professor in Archival
Enterprise, details Daniel's six-year fight to win legislative approval for
the construction of buildings to house the Supreme Court and attorney
general's office and to centralize many state agencies. At the time, the
Supreme Court and attorney general's office were jammed into an over-
crowded capitol building, and many state agencies were scattered
around Austin. The pamphlet, a handsome twenty-eight-page document
with more than twenty black-and-white photographs, is available free of
charge to anyone who contacts the Graduate School of Library and In-
formation Science, UT Austin, Austin 78712-1276, telephone 512/471-
