A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A lot of different kinds of people have come to Texas since the Spanish first met the Indians within its borders. And that is what this book is about—all the Cajuns and Mexicans and Czechs, all the colors and breeds and bones that have come to Texas and mixed their blood and their ways of life with the land they settled and the people they neighbored with. The main body of the book consists of writings about the customs and cures and the songs and stories and tales that twenty-four different ethnic groups brought with them when they came to stay in Texas.
