Review:
Here is quintessential America from the mountains of North Carolina, arranged- and for decades memorably performed- by the wandering troubadour; Richard Chase. Big Jack and Little Jack, Jack and the Bull, Jack and the Bean tree- many of the plots are familiar. But Chase's snappy colloquial dialogue, his sharp sense of pell-mell narration, make these tellings small beauties. A short appendix will steer you to parallel tales.
