These Storied Mountains
By John Parris

With native flower sketches by Dorothy Luxton Parris

Here is a rich, new collection of mountain folk tales and mountain folkways, traditions and legends mined from the hills of Western North Carolina by the mountains' special chronicler

This is John Parris, mountain born himself, writing with skill and sympathy and the ease of familiarity about a people of great dignity and simplicity of character, and a land of almost magical and intoxicating beauty

These Storied Mountains is a book that has been fashioned into a rich storehouse of good reading for young and old, as welcome for reading aloud as for solitary browsing

In it you will meet Aunt Albie McCall, a mountain woman still hoeing her own patch of corn at the age of 102; Sarah Kirkland, the Midwife of the Hills; Danny Gillespie, the Thrush Doctor; Rachel Houston, Queen of the Coon Hunters; Ernest Hodges, the King of the Fiddle Makers

You will relive a time of prophecy and strange happenings in the hills; travel a history-haunted road, and know the Cherokee world of myth
