Description
 
Mountain Wisdom Mountain Folk, Volume 1 is a collection of folklore from the Appalachian region. As the region becomes more homogenized into mainstream America, the wisdom of older generations is in great danger of being lost forever. This work includes such things as home remedies, planting tips, dream interpretations, superstitions, and a variety of interesting ideas held in the region. The material is supported by authentic vintage photos from the area. The appeal is not only residents of the Appalachian region, but to all who find an interest in folklore in the United States. Many of the traditional beliefs came with our European ancestors who settled these mountains in the original western migration.
