edited by Leslie Conron

Madison Park Press.
Alternate selection for The Literary Guild, Book-of-the-Month Club.

American folklore is like a large quilt with elements from many cultures, all brought together in one collective piece. The individual tales are very human: they reveal a way of thinking, a way of life, and a sense of place that is decidedly American, with all the accumulated differences. This collection includes a broad range of tales, myths, and legends that take us on a journey of America's past. We laugh, we cry, and we nod in agreement with them. We are moved by them.
