2 How Come It's Called That: Place Names in the Big Bend Country
Madison, Virginia; Stillwell, Hallie Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A. University of New Mexico Press 1958 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
; 129 pages with index; First Edition/First Printing; Book block is tight with undamaged pages; Back-free endpaper at top-left has erased former price (it was in pencil); Map on endpapers; Light-green boards with a marble-pattern; Title in green to the spine (front board splays slightly) Beige, brown & green dust-jacket with modest shelf & edge wear including feint sun-fade to spine with title clear & bright; We have placed the dust-jacket in a protective, removable, clear mylar cover; .....(As 'tall tales' and speculations have long surrounded the origins of place names in the Big Bend Country, the authors decided to provide a history of Big Bend's name-christenings, and it was accomplished by obtaining interviews, poring over old maps and newspapers, tracking down documents, fording streams and going up the mountains of Big Bend to find the authentic, as well as the folktales behind the names. This treasury of stories, which preserves the richness of folk history and thought, will please tourists, residents and armchair visitors alike, and is a chronicle of topgraphic name-calling by Texans. The Big Bend refers to the crooked-elbow shape of the Rio Grande, which curves around almost seven million acres of canyon, mountain and desert, encompassing towns, canyons, and creeks, and this now documented information will also add much to modern-day tourists that come to the Big Bend National Park to marvel at the three-quarters of a million acres of mountainous terrain.)
