Myths & Legends of Our Own Land

Volumes I and II of this 2-volume set

by
Charles Skinner

When myth and history combine, a legend is born. . .




If you aren't familiar with 'myth and legend' books.... get ready for a new adventure through history! History is not as cut-and-dried as we've been led to believe, they are also a different look at our past. Whimsy mixes with fact as some of the "beliefs" surrounding our origins as a nation and our traditions are revealed in this journey into Americana.

The gems in this set are told in "oral history" style. In contrast to the more familiar classical myths of ancient Greece and Roman, these reflect the diversity of the different regions and peoples of the United States. Most of the stories are short ones (no epics) and are a good overview of many of the dimensions of American myths and legends.

Skinner was born in Victor, New York. His career in literature and journalism included editorship of the Brooklyn Eagle. Skinner published collections of myths, legends and folklore found inside the United States and across the world. Skinner hoped that America’s progress would transform the nation’s few legends into few but great ones – "as time goes on the figures seen against the morning twilight of our history will rise to more commanding stature."


From the Preface: "The bibliography of American legends is slight, and these tales have been gathered from sources the most diverse records, histories, newspapers, magazines, oral narrative - in every case reconstructed."

"It will be noted that traditions do not thrive in brick and brownstone, and that the stories once rife in the colonial cities have almost disappeared just as the architectural landmarks of last century."
