Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this rich, rousing anthology, Nancy Van Laan takes readers on a romp through the bayous, mountains, and lowlands of the American South. Her retellings are full of energy, spunk, and that distinctive voice that makes Southern stories among our nation's most beloved. Readers will meet unforgettable characters like Brer' Rabbit, Fool John, and Ol' Gaily Mander, and learn a whole passle of poems, sayings, and superstitions to live by. Scott Cook's illustrations practically jump off the pages — they're perfectly suited to a book that's full to the brim with that inimitable Southern love for good storytelling.
