Campfire Stories

Rick Steber

Categories: Oregon

Resource Description

The storyteller spins a web of fantasy while the campfire sends a shower of sparks leaping into the night sky to drift among the ancient stars. It is in this manner that the history of mankind has been passed from one generation to the next. In North America the native people formed their cultures and spiritual beliefs through stories. In today’s world it might appear that campfire stories can no longer compete with movies and television. But no special effect can ever come close to the power and impact of human imagination.

This book is full of short stories about the Wild West. Watch the faces of your listeners and know the value and significance of keeping alive our time-honored traditions of oral history.

This book needs to be returned.
