S16C8 Folk Legends, Stories and Tales from the Blue Ridge

Description: Join us for some old-time stories and folk tales surrounding the life and times of the people who explored and settled in the mountains and hollows. We can learn a lot about their culture and history through their stories that have been passed down through the generations. Jim grew up in East Rockingham during a time when sitting around a campfire, a warm stove at the country store, or when neighbors gathered for "bees"; storytelling was still a large part of the culture and entertainment. Our fourth class will be a trip to the mountains to coinside with wild flowers.

Instructor: LLI member Jim Lawson, whose mother and mathernal grandparents were former (displaced) SNP people has made SNP history an on going study. Jim volunteers for SNP, Ravinia Master Naturalist Chapter and is a Potomic Appalachian Trail Club member, Road Scholar teacher/guide and frequent LLI class contributer.
