LOVE his stories!

I had the privilege of having W. C. Jameson as my geography professor at UCA. I loved it when he would tell us about his travels. He's an awesome storyteller. I wish he would've been the narrator on this book!

hampered by the narrator

the stories are great. painting a side of the USA which I have never seen again. unfortunately while the actual prose of the writing should have been enough to bring these tales to life, the narration seemed somewhat lifeless. a little monotonous, like a teacher reading a text out. can't fault the enunciation though.

Great Collection of Tales/Monotone Narration

This is a great collection of spooky folk tales. Unfortunately, the narration doesn’t fit the material. The interesting tales are diminished by the droning relation. It was a real effort to get through this for a time. It had been an audiobook I had looked forward to. Someone with a great storyteller’s voice like Richard Henzel would’ve made this come alive.

Delightful

For lovers of the Ozarks, folklore, and especially both, this is an absolute hoot. Fascinating, creepy, funny, and sometimes very sad. Like a history class filtered through a campfire night.

Ozark monsters

Great story telling...enjoyed this book. I have always believed if the native Indians get the heck out of a certain area, you should too.
