(silhouette drawings) Anecdotal folk tales of Eastern Kentucky. "Out of the mysterious 'creek world' of the Appalachians where Americans who speak an English as old as Shakespeare's live a life as vital as Broadway's yet strange as a mediaeval ballad, [the author] has poured the magic of a new literary creation. By the eldritch thrill of story, the infectious humor of character and situation, and the haunting language and significance of the book, the reader will be swept into this strangely entralling and lyric world." .
