Sweet Land of Story

(2000)
Thirty-Six American Tales to Tell
A collection of stories by

 
This unique collection of American stories from the frozen tundra of Alaska to the lush green hills of Virginia; from the sweltering bayous of Louisiana to the windswept prairies of South Dakota is told in DeSpain's signature gentle style. Every reader will find something of interest - the stories range from practical tales of wisdom such as "Pulling the Rope" to silly and scary ones such as "The Haint that Roared" and "The Big, Smelly, Hairy Toe." The stories' represent not only the geographic diversity of the United States but also offer a portrait of our nation's character, values, beliefs, and customs that differ from region to region yet retain a fundamental sense of shared community. These American folktales will teach readers the importance of fairness, responsibility and trustworthiness.
