Death lore : Texas rituals, superstitions, and legends of the hereafter by Kenneth L Untiedt( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Death provides us with some of our very best folklore. Some fear it, some embrace it, and most have pretty firm ideas about what happens when we die. Although some people may not want to discuss dying, it happens to all of us--and there's no way to get around it. This publication of the Texas Folklore Society examines the lore of death and whatever happens afterward. The first chapter examines places where people are buried, either permanently or temporarily. Chapter two features articles about how people die and the rituals associated with funerals and burials. The third chapter explores some of the stranger stories about what happens after we're gone, and the last chapter offers some philosophical musings about death in general, as well as our connection to those who have gone before

Legends of Texas by J. Frank Dobie( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legends of Texas is as sizable and varied as the state itself, and J Frank Dobie, perhaps the West's greatest historian, devoted years of his life to collecting and cataloguing its many stories. The stories in this first volume of the Pelican series are reprinted from Dobie's Legends of Texas, originally published in1924 by the Texas Folklore Society, and represent some of the enduring tales that have em embellished the history of the state. Dobie believed that worthwhile literature about his region must be derived from an understanding of its life, history, and lore. The legends represented in this work, and in the rest of the series, were regarded by Dobie as "the most influential in opening the eyes of people to the richness of their own traditions." Legends of the lost mines and buried treasures have stirred the imagination and quickened the pulse of man for centuries. These stories will have the same effect on any that reads them
