Maintained by Sandra E. Schlosser, a freelance author, this site contains numerous tales of American folklore. Casting a broad net, the sections are organized around different themes, such as Famous Characters, Historical Folklore, and Regional Folktales. Along with these areas, there is also a complete alphabetical list of all the different tales on the site. One of its best parts is a section on Tall Tales, which relate different stories about ghosts, holidays, and various places that have arisen out of the American folklore tradition. The site is a good way to get reacquainted with the folklore tradition in America, while serving as a solid introduction to the subject for young people.
