Mexican Ghost Tales of the Southwest

Mexican Ghost Tales of the Southwest

Alfred Ávila

Alfred Ávila

These deliciously gory tales are recounted by the talented storyteller Alfred Avila, who has recorded the stories told to him by previous generations. Included are pieces about La Llorona, the Wailing Woman of Aztec-Hispanic tradition; the hell that lies within Pancho Villa's treasure caves; and numerous restless ghosts. This volume includes Avila's illustrations of the spooky characters that populate these stories and represent the Mexican tradition of the Southwest. Here at last is the rich Mexican-American heritage that will take its place beside the headless horseman in bookshelves, nights around the campfire and Halloween recountings.
