Tucson: University of Arizona Press, 1993. FIRST EDITION. A Fine Cloth Copy in fine dust jacket. 476 pages. Tall octavo. In the rural areas of south central Mexico, there are believed to be witches-called tlahuelpuchis-who transform themselves into animals in order to suck the blood of sleeping infants. Because these tlahuelpuchis are inherently evil and indistinguishable from ordinary people, they are more feared than other kinds of supernaturals. 476 pages, indexed. Royal 8vo. (Item ID: 16607)
