For the past two decades, Orville Hicks has enthralled audiences with his storytelling performances. In 2007, Orville was honored with a North Carolina Heritage Award. Jack Tales and Mountain Yarns includes more than 20 transcribed stories that expertly capture the voice of the master storyteller. Each of these stories is paired with lively pencil sketches by Sherry Jensen.

Some of the stories tell of Orville's childhood and focus on mountain traditions such as gathering galax and selling pumpkins. Others are traditional Jack tales, which feature the antics of the mischievous boy named Jack. The most recognizable Jack tale is the story of Jack and the beanstalk.
