With this volume, Richard Dorson sets out to rectify the almost complete neglect of folklore in New England by assembling from forgotten literary weeklies, and from newspapers. New England town histories, almanacs, scrapbooks, and other little-known sources, a compendium of the riches of New England folktale and legend. The book contains an introductory chapter on New England story-telling—its long traditional practice both oral and printed—and sections on supernatural stories, Yankee yarns, tall tales, local legends, and the use of folktales by New England writers.
