George is managing editor of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly and assistant director of the Texas State Historical Association. He is also a good friend. George remarked that in traveling around the state of Texas, one public school teacher after another has asked him why there was so little in print on Texas history—other than textbooks—for adolescents.

He found out that Indians along the Texas coast, known as the Mariames, regularly killed girl babies and fed their bodies to dogs. Don Alvar asked them why they would do such a terrible thing. Like those Indians you have already read about who did not take care of old people, the answer made sense. The Mariames were a small group of Indians, and most of them were related to each other. It was not possible for their young women to marry a brother or a cousin, for this would amount to incest.
