Subject: RE: Tune Req: The Rowan Stave
That whole ballad series is wonderful. Read them all. I'm getting ready to teach ballads as literature but also as a lead-in to a cultural unit related to westward expansion and a speaker from Appalachia.   I'm going to use this in it and explain the whole bit to the kids. Apparently the STORY may be old??? I'm going to try to find out if she made that up too.

Her website is wonderful. Highly recommend it.
