Put aside those other Mexican folklore collections of treasure legends, short stories, weather lore and sentimental lyrics. This one is truly picante! Paredes, the preeminent authority on the intercultural jest and Mexican-American folklore, collected most of these humorous, often bawdy, tales along the Lower Rio Grande Valley, in central Mexico and in the U.S. Midwest during the 1960s The versions he selected were those performed with the greatest artistry.
