Comments:

"This is a lively, well balanced and insightful book. Boldly combining the perspective of an "inquisitive folklorist," the voice of a purposeful storyteller, and the fire of the "curious girl" of many a wondertale, Kay Stone's book is a bright light guiding us down the contemporary Canadian and American river of stories. Readers of fairytale, teachers, storytellers, folklorists, librarians, and students of oral narratives and performance can all benefit from Stone's careful and unpretentious analysis as well as the stories she lovingly presents." - Christina Cacchilega, University of Hawaii-Manoa

"Scholarly yet accessible." - The Globe and Mail

"Stone is uniquely qualified to write a study of the history, development, current status, and future trends of the storytelling movement. Readers ... will want to add this important book to their bookshelves." - The Story Bag
