San Antonio Legacy
Folklore and Legends of a Diverse People
Colorful tales of San Antonio’s most memorable characters
Frontier San Antonio attracted a great many short-tempered miscreants and adventurers. It also drew missionary priests, conservative merchants, and proper ladies, who established a polite society amid all the commotion.
San Antonio Legacy offers their stories, some factual and some less so, often in their own words, from disorder in the Bull’s Head Saloon to hiding silver on wagons to Mexico to the lynching of Bob Augustine in front of the Bishop’s house. Each story is illustrated with a drawing by Texas artist José Cisneros.
