"Roaming the Mountains with John Parris". 1955. My favorite of my old books because it was based on John Parris's column in my local paper where he reported Appalachian history and folklore of my area of North Carolina.
I love this series of mysteries set in my beloved North Carolina mountains that features Elizabeth Goodweather . It weaves in so much of the my forebearers history and myth of this wonderfully forgotten pocket of Americana.
