This readable survey of folklore and folklife in Maryland is a fascinating guide to the kind of traditions that exist right under peoples’ noses–if they take the time to look. Tall tales, legends, folk heroes, and local characters all fall within the purview of george Carey, who studied local folk culture under a charge from a Maryland government commission long before the current system of state folklorist was established.
