Lomax, a co-founder of the Texas Folklore Society. This sketch of Dobie's old friend is followed by Lomax's own "Cowboy Lingo, : which was found among Dobie's papers, and by two other articles on the cowboy by men whose names sound out in the history of southwestern writing-- Eugene Manlove Rhodes and Andy Adams. The theme of the cowboy and the West is further pursued in "The Cowboy's Code," "The Cowboy Enters the Movies, " "Billy the Kid, Hired Gun or Hero," and "Laureates of the Western Range." Next comes a collection of passages on folklore from Dobie's writings. The second half of Sunny Slopes illustrates this sort of enrichment through the contributions of a number of TFS member-authors. ; 6.25" x 9.25"; 204 pages; 0870740822
