    The common themes behind these short stories involve romance, courage, and obedience, and I know a lot of folks would like to have a peek on the romantic stories. Definitely recommend to my personal friends.

    If you want to learn a little bit of Border culture pick up this book! Many stories I had heard, but many I had not. Makes for fun reading.
