Later Printing. From the cover: “I’ll Tell You a Tale is a garland of some of Frank Dobie’s best writing, put together by Isabel Gaddis, one of his former students at the University of Texas. Although selected by Mrs. Gaddis, the tales included are those the author himself liked best, and he even rewrote some of them especially for this anthology. Ben Carlton Mead has contributed 32 original line drawings to illustrate the stories. These tales spring from the soil and folklore of our land; but more than this, they make the readers contemporary with the times, filling us with the wonder of something past and yet still with us. They are arranged topically into sections whose titles speak for them: “The Longhorn Breed”, “Mustangs and Mustangers”, “The Saga of the Saddle”, “Characters and Happenings of Long Ago”, “Animals of the Wild”, “In Realms of Gold”, and “Ironies”.”
