    A collection of folklore from North Carolina. Something that I would pick up, here and there, and read a story before laying it aside again. I guess I just don't enjoy this type of book now as much as I did when I was a teenager. Bought at the visitors center while in search of The Lost Colony, Outer Banks, N.C. .
