DOG GHOSTS AND OTHER TEXAS NEGRO FOLK TALES.
Austin: University of Texas Press, 1958. xiv,124pp. Drawings by John T. Biggers. Gray cloth with black lettering. First edition. Except for two very small stains to the top edge, it is a fine copy. Small semi-circular stain to the back flap of the dust jacket and slight edgewear, overall very good+ (see web page for scans). J. Frank Dobie: “Even better than The Word on the Brazos.” Dog ghosts are benign spirits who come back from the dead to aid or protect loved ones. Sometimes the efforts were not always appreciated by the “beneficiary.” In addition to these stories, Dr. Brewer collected religious tales, farm and ranch tales, animal tales, tales of slavery and others that defy classification. An exceptionally nice copy.
