This readable survey of folklore and folklife in Maryland is a fascinating guide to the kind of traditions that exist right under people's 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 folklorists was established.
