Online content captures memories of local people.
How might a farmer of yesteryear in the Southern Appalachian Mountains have cured a bovine case of milk fever?
That and much more is captured in a series of oral interviews with the people of Western North Carolina now available online through Western Carolina University’s Hunter Library.
“Stories of Mountain Folk,” the first allsound collection released by Hunter Library, is available at their website. The collection’s interviews cover traditions, events and life stories of regional individuals including gardeners, herbalists, farmers, musicians, artists and writers. The archive is searchable by name, place and topic.
