Stories That Must Not Die. Volume Four.
Fourth in a series of bilingual (Spanish and English) texts intended to promote interest in bilingual/bicultural programs and to preserve the colorful folklore of the Southwest, this text contains 10 traditional tales from the area. Accompanied by black and white illustrations, the tales concern local legends and personalities ("Thunder Ramirez", "In Love With a Dead Man", "Smoke for Christmas"); folklore, especially relating to wedding customs ("The Bride Said No", "Watch Out for Short Cuts", "Nothing but the Shoes", "A Devil in the Well", "The Perfume that Kills", "Crazy but Not as Much as All That"); and animals ("The Jealous Barn Owl"). English and Spanish versions of each story are presented side by side, followed by a series of questions (also in both languages) suggested by the subject matter and directly related to the story. The book ends with a vocabulary and cognate section, listing 30-40 words in both languages for each story. (SB)
