KIRKUS REVIEW

The author is from Arkansas and this collection of the local folklore is pure and unvarnished -- with unposed photographs and in the language ""exactly as she was spoke."" Country wisdom on such matters as scarecrows, fireplaces, the smokehouse, the bee yard and honey gathering, hog butchering and keeping a turnip cellar. Also less utilitarian pastimes like courting, square dancing and playing musical instruments.
