Summary

This exhilarating book brings together some of the best classic stories told in the United States. Many of the
tales were brought to the USA from Europe, and their origins can be traced from that European tradition. But wherever they spring from, the tales are told in a rich American voice. These vivid stories, full of magic,
humor, and wisdom have been minimally retold by the editor, whose introduction and notes set them securely in their folklore context. Aunt Lizbeth Fields’ thoroughly American tale of ‘A Stepchild That Was Treated Mighty Bad,’ for example, is identified as a version of the Grimms’ ‘Snow White’. Jacqueline Mair’s delightful illustrations, based on American folk art, have the stitched and embroidered texture of a much-loved family quilt.
