Riassunto: 1930. From In the Beginning: These tales are not creations of mine. They belong to the soil and to the people of the soil. Like all things that belong, they have their roots deep in the place of their being, deep too in the past. They are an outgrowth; they embody the geniuses of divergent races and peoples who even while fiercely opposing each other blended their traditions. However all this may be, the tales are just tales. As tales I have listened to them in camps under stars and on ranch galleries out in the brush. As tales, without any ethnological palaver, I have tried to set them down. Contents: The Lost San Saba Mine; Down the Nueces; The Facts about Fort Ramirez; The Circumstance of War; Tales of the Cow Camp; Post Hole Banks; Midas on a Goatskin; The Lost Nigger Mine; On West; Los Muertos No Hablan; The Challenge of the Desert; In the Sunshine of the Pecos; The Pecos Barricade; The Secret of the Guadalupes; Not Only Gold and Silver; Sartin for Sure; The Treasure of the Wichitas; Laffite and Pirate Booty; and Shadows and Symbols.
Written in 1930, Coronado's Children was one of J. Frank Dobie's first books, and the one that helped gain him national prominence as a folklorist. In it, he recounts the tales and legends of those hardy souls who searched for buried treasure in the Southwest following in the footsteps of that earlier gold seeker, the Spaniard Coronado.
"These people," Dobie writes in his introduction, "no matter what language they speak, are truly Coronado's inheritors.... l have called them Coronado's children. They follow Spanish trails, buffalo trails, cow trails, they dig where there are no trails; but oftener than they dig or prospect they just sit and tell stories of lost mines, of buried bullion by the jack load... "
This is the tale-spinning Dobie at his best, dealing with subjects as irresistible as ghost stories and haunted houses.
