A very nice 1943 printing of this guide to the Southwest in history and literature by J. Frank Dobie, designed to "help people of the Southwest see significances in the features of the land to which they belong, to make their environments more interesting to them, their past more alive, to bring them to a realization of the values of their own cultural inheritance, and to stimulate them to observe," (page 7), arising from J. Frank Dobie's University of Texas course "Life and Literature of the Southwest," according to Dobie his "only academic love." Good. Item #4361
