About the book:

Book: Folklore continues to be an influence in our lives. They are present in our stories, in the way we talk to each other; and even in the names we choose for our streets, rivers, and baseball teams. This volume divides our country into four sections, then subdivided by legend or folklore type. In each section you will find chapters on 'Legends and Legendary Figures,' 'Pirates and Buried Treasure,' 'Portens, Charms, and Remedies,' 'The Supernatural,' and 'Customs and Beliefs'. Included are over 150 of our country's most important myths and legends including Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Johnny Appleseed, and Paul Bunyan. You will also learn the legends surrounding St. Patrick's Day, The Sun Dance, The Coffin of Snakes, Pirate Joe, and The River of Lost Souls. Also Vampire Superstitutions, Wart Remedies, Witchcraft, Goblins, Evangeline, Voodoo Charm, Werewolves, and many more.
