This is one of the seminal collections of Appalachian folk tales. Marie Campbell came to Caney Junior College (now Alice Lloyd College) in Knott County, Kentucky, in 1926 and began transcribing mountain folk tales. Later she taught at the Carcassonne School in Letcher County. When I listed this book, there was only one other copy of this book for sale on the web with its wonderful dust jacket, illustrated, like the book, by the outstanding artist, Claire Leighton (1898-1989).
Bloomington: Indiana University Press,1958. 270 pages, illustrated by Claire Leighton, with a Bibliography and Notes. Hardback in dust jacket.
