With more than 1,800 entries ranging from Helen Abell (historic preservationist) to Sebastian Zorn (twice president of the Louisville Water Co.), The Encyclopedia of Louisville is the ultimate reference for Kentuckys largest city.

Tales from the Cloud Walking Country Tales from the Cloud Walking Country  
by Marie Campbell  
Seventy-eight stories from six of the "ballad-singingest, tale-tellingest" residents of the eastern Kentucky mountain country. Based on stories rooted in European traditions from German fairy tales to Irish hero stories to Greek myths, the tales had been handed down through generations of telling before Marie Campbell collected them in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Readers will recognize the story of Snow White in "A Stepchild That Was Treated Mighty Bad," while "Three Shirts and a Golden Finger Ring" recalls the fairy tale of the Seven Swans. "The Fellow That Married a Dozen Times" is a lively rendition of "Bluebeard." The narrators cautioned Marie Campbell again and again, "Tale-telling is nigh about faded out in the mountain country," but Tales from the Cloud Walking Country offers a lasting record of history, cultural heritage, language, and good, old-fashioned fun.
