Stories That Must Not Die. Volume Three.
Local history and legends of spirits appear often in this bilingual Spanish and English collection of 10 Southwest traditional tales, intended to promote interest in bilingual/bicultural programs and to preserve the colorful folklore of the area. Black and white drawings accompany the stories which deal with animals ("A Parrot for Christmas", "An Eye for an Eye"); local history and legend ("The Rangers", "Don Pedrito's Triumph", "The Cuddling Ghost", "The Voice", "A Watch from the World Beyond"); folklore ("The Magical Pears"); and the social problem of drinking ("Not Only One but Two Devils", "I Wanted to See Mama Also"). The English and Spanish non-literal translations of each story appear together, followed by a series of related questions, also in both languages. The Spanish-English vocabulary section which completes the book contains about 30-40 words and cognates per story. The book is the third in a series of four texts. (SB)
