Abernethy, Francis Edward 1994. This book is part of the collection entitled: Texas Folklore Society Publications and was provided by UNT Press to Digital Library, a digital repository hosted by the UNT Libraries. It has been viewed 6483 times, with 45 in the last month. The University of North Texas Press was founded in 1987 and published its first book in 1989. Though it is the newest university press in North Texas, it has quickly become a leading press with the most titles in print (more than 300) and published (15 to 18 each year). The Texas Folklore Society is pleased to be pulling in tandem with the Texas Foundation and doing its bit in belated but heartfelt recognition. It's a book about Texas women whose deeds have so struck the public imagination that they have become archetypes, representing the virtues and values that people have found interesting and admirable, characteristics that have survival value. The fact that the stories of these ladies have not been adequately documented down through the years is an error of omission that the Texas Folklore Society would like to do its part to correct.

Texas Folklore Society Publication XLIX. Printed in the United States of America. Hill's "The Bounty of the Woods. I do not know when I have received a paper that I enjoyed as much as Rusty Hill's reminiscences of living off the land and trapping in the Big Bend and West Texas during the late Twenties. Rusty's double first cousin, Roland Broaddus of Dallas, had a copy of Rusty's hand-written memoirs which he was kind enough to send me in typed form.
