Overview

History is steeped in wonderful and strange folklore. Here, premier storyteller Cynthia Moore Brown tells 17 old-timey favorites, each one including a special home-style recipe connected to the story. As for the lore, avoid a brush with death in "Wait Until Spring," discover the dark secret a little bunny is hiding in "Bee Keeper," root for Jack and his animal friends as they come face to face with Wild Hair Willy in "Jack and the Robbers," and rediscover a mountain classic, told as only Cynthia can tell, in "Simple Jack." This series of folktales is beautifully put to paper by mythologist, Theresa Bane, with a foreword presented by Etta Skaggs Reid, genealogist and historian. Drawings are by T. Glenn Bane, winner of a silver medal in the national Benjamin Franklin awards. So bake a batch of biscuits or brew some Southern Brunswick Stew as you curl up to some mighty exciting stories heard for generations!
