These stories are creative adaptations of traditional folk tales brought to life by a culinary legend and master in the art of storytelling. Peppered with Pennsylvania Dutch language expressions, and a generous portion of regionally-specific folk-cultural traditions, Weaver's writing is helping to keep the old stories vibrant for new generations to enjoy. Some story titles include: The Blue Egg, The Brunnmemmi, Thieves' Vinegar, Brutzelmemmi's Chair, Prince of the Silver Arrow, etc. (200pp. illus. index. hardcover.
