98 pp, 8 3/16" H. "The oral tradition of Kentucky is one of the most interesting in the nation and has attracted a number of outstanding men and women - scholars and writers, teachers and singers - who have devoted their energies to Kentucky's folk and their ways. Some have collected examples of the state's unique speech patterns and word usages. Others have recorded local place names and the legends that surround them, or the yarns and tall tales transmitted from one generation to the next. Musicians have sought the authentic mountain folksongs, both old and new, and gifted writers have woven details of their Kentucky upbringing into poems, novels, and stories. Here is described the work of these enthusiastic students." Contents: Preface; Introduction; Folk Images of Kentucky; Kentucky Words and Brief Expressions; The Yarnspinners in Kentucky; Folk History and Legends; Kentucky Singers; Folklore in Kentucky Literature; Summing Up; Published Sources; Unpublished Sources. Book is lightly cocked, scattered areas of light color fading on spine and hinges, light edge wear, light rubbing on boards.
