These stories were well told in a manner that was great for the young reader. Using dialogue and research from historical sources, Walker tells these stories in a word of mouth fashion that is inviting and comfortable. The stories are exaggerated, yet often explain naturally occurring phenomena and show light on past cultural belief systems.
