This is the first annotated dictionary of Chicano proverbs to be published, and the first to use standard folklore methodology. It is the result of a study of Mexican American folklore and folklife in the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas, a major area of demographic and cultural concentration. Often called the wisdom of the folk, proverbs are perceived as traditional sayings with roots in oral folklore, and as such are considered useful as a way of making a potentially profound and culturally appropriate statement in a common but difficult human situation.

Excerpt from El Diablo Imbued with a fisherman's sixth sense of feeling his way along familiar channels rendered unfamiliar by fog, Bill Lang piloted his craft skilfully down the Silent bay in the direction of the Open sea. Crouching in the bow, Mexican Joe sought with cat-like eyes to pierce the gray veil of blinding fog. Narrowly averting collision with unlighted harbor boats, bumping at times over sandy shoals, plowing through grass-grown mud-flats and skirting danger ous reefs with only the smallest margin of safety, they came at last to the jettied outlet of Crescent Bay.

This bilingual sampler of southwestern tales, legends, and myths offers the modern reader wisdom passed down for hundreds of years. The themes of these stories are universal--love and its costs, forgiveness, good versus evil--but the voices, images, and incidents are unique to the Southwest. Set in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and northern Mexico, this timeless material offers lessons about life and how to triumph over its hardships: from making a bargain with the devil to gaining peace through true love; from dealing with inexplicable, even supernatural events to accepting special gifts that transform pain into joy; and from overcoming jealousy, anger, or stinginess to accepting others just as they are. Moving stories of the firstfarolitoas well as other Christmastime stories evoke children's wonder at the season's simplest gifts. Throughout the volume, stories simultaneously instruct, console, and even amuse us, such as the accounts of the impoverished hunter who, for lack of a bullet, shoots a deer with a cherry pit and then harvests a crop of fruit from the animal; or the penniless young man trying to win over the family of his loved one who heeds a voice that tells him soon he "will be sad but glad" if he picks up stones on his journey to her house. These cuentos continue a rich oral tradition in which stories appeal to our emotions and their impact is experienced long after the telling. "A viable contemporary portrait of an age-old tradition."--Professor Enrique Lamadrid, University of New Mexico"
