This collection of supernatural tales showcases the talents of storyteller David Holt and includes a range of great tell-aloud stories--from scary tales of North Carolina mountain folks to Alaskan, Irish, and Scottish folktales. Holt commands listeners' attention with his vivid characterizations. He has a natural-sounding Southern accent and a knack for entertaining dialogue. Harmonica riffs and banjo trills conjure up a Southern backdrop for some of the stories. Suspense-building techniques often draw on music, as well. Using guitar and jaw harp, Holt gives voice to a monster's howl and creates the thrill of the hunt. This unique blend of story and music captures the attention of listeners, young and old alike, as Holt takes them around the world and deep into their imaginations.
