These stories are my retellings of traditional tales found in Appalachia. All are substantially informed by multiple field recordings heard in the Leonard Roberts Collection, Berea College Department of Special Collections and Archives. This research was supported by Berea's Sound Archives Fellowship Program. These retellings are also informed by local tellers I have met while traveling through Appalachia.
