Publications of the Texas Folklore Society Number XXIII. Musical arrangements by Willa Mae Kelly Koehn. From the dust jacket- "The American ballad section is full of the stories of battles, crimes, and catastrophes that appealed as subjects to the folk singers of our country when they adapted the British ballad tradition to their own use."
