Vermont stories in the Ripton church

Vermont folklorist Jane Beck shared wonderful stories last Sunday, in the community church.

Beck arranged these into categories based on common life experiences: family stories, stories about the coming of the automobile, touchstone tales. Stories about social change, "hard stories" about the worst things in life, "strong man" stories, even accounts of Robert Frost spanned a rich, moving hour.
