Buckeye Legends: Folktales and Lore from Ohio
By Michael Jay Katz

Folk characters and some just-plain-old folk are featured in the delightful stories retold in Buckeye Legends. Stories about the ill-fated Harmann Blennerhassett, for instance, who squandered a fortune and was arrested for treason with Aaron Burr. And Joe Copperwing, the last of the Shawnee Indians in the state, who stayed in Old Chillicotha on Grandpa Paxson's farm rather than be forced to leave the state. And then there's Louis Sartain's corpse that wouldn't bleed and pretty Ruthy Sue who was strangled at the hands of a giant in Paint Creek valley.

Michael Jay Katz retells these and other stories with a homespun charm that captivates the reader. Drawing much of the material from anecdotes, history, and bits and pieces of oral folklore, Katz acts as narrator in presenting the lore and legends about the folks in Ohio.
