One of my faves and very well told! It is by Martha Holloway and collected in Best Loved Stories: Told at the National Storytelling Festival (Paperback) by National Association for the Preservation of Storytelling (Author), Mary C. Weaver (Editor), Jimmy Neil Smith (Editor). I remember Onawumi Jean Moss telling this at STF recently.


Grand Prize for South Shore Grand Slam Story Slam generously donated by Nicolette Heavey and Stories In The Streets (A Maine Get Away)
