But the stories and curiosities about this fascinating figure still alive. One refers to the respect and care that had Lampião the older and the poor. It is said that one night, the nomads cangaceiros stopped for dinner and sleep in a small place - and generally did. A gang of men wanted to eat the meat and owner of the house, a lady of more than 80 years, had prepared a stew of chicken. The subject got out and returned with a dead goat in his arms. "All here. Kill this bitch. Now, you can cook for me," he said. The old lady, crying, said that only had one goat and that was that it took the milk of three grandchildren. Without taking his eyes of the plate, Lampião ordered one of his flock: "Pay the goat of the woman." The other, defeated, threw some coins on the table: "That to me is charity." It Lampião said: "Now pay the goat, subject". "But Lampião, I already paid." "No. That, as you said, was a pittance. Now, pay." Created with seven siblings - three women and four men -, Lampião could read and write, played accordion, was poetry, using French perfume, sewing and was slick with the leather. "It was he who made their own hats and espadrilles," says Anildomá Souza. Decorate clothing, hats and even arms with mirrors, coins of gold, stars and medals was Lampião invention. The use of rings, gloves and leggings too. Weapons, corners and accessories were passed by the neck. Hence the name cangaço, which comes from canga, piece of wood used to hold the bull by carro.este is a story of my beloved Brazil
