Folk tales are where we live…

“That is how I ultimately see the stories in this book—as folk history. I can’t produce them in repeatable experiments, so they don’t qualify as science, and they are often too much at odds with known events of the past to qualify as official history. Sometimes the legends themselves vary in telling from one person to another. But that is fine with me. Folk tales are where we live—and perhaps where some other sorts of things do, too.”

–Linda S. Godfrey, Haunted Wisconsin (2010)
