KIRKUS REVIEW

This is fun, as the selections chosen amplify types of yarning the country over, stressing regional qualities. These are stories of things that happened, of people, of history and near-history, of tradition and experience, that combine to represent the national ability for building fact into fiction. Modern as well as period pieces are included; local tall tale tellers as well as literary figures are represented; the whole is an ample top cut of American folklore.
