This book is in my opinion Dobies best, at least on a literary level. It is the story of his wanderings in northern Mexico during a sabatical. Dobie is a folklorist, but this work mixes folklore and travelogue with a mystical twist in places. He unabasedly notes he disguises the locations so that others can not follow in his footsteps and bother his ranch owner friends. Read this book. It is exceptionally good.
