KIRKUS REVIEW

The ""tralpsin' woman"" supplies good indigenous material, for this addition to the American Folkways Series, though it is more one-sided than the other titles in the group. She gives a lick and a promise to history, geography and facts, and settles down to the legends and the yarns, the feuds and the stills, spells and superstitions, ballads and songs of her mountain people. The Cumberland country is an inexhaustible repository of these colorful fighting feuding tales. The last chapter gives a look-see at the last decade, changes in education, farming, mining, government aid.
