Thread Name: Folklore: New book on Tom Dooley+
Subject: RE: Folklore: New book on Tom Dooley+
Having enjoyed Sharyn McCrumb's earlier novels I thought this might be of interest. However,if in fact the true story is revealed why does the cover on the book call it a novel? Novel according my dictionary is "a long fictitious story in book form".
This just looks like another piece of hype by the publishers. Perhaps Ms McCrumb could emlighten us. Is it fact or fiction?
