  Smoky Mountain Jack Tales of Winter and Old Christmas
is the title of Lew’s book, featuring nine Christmas and twelve all-season stories.  Based on traditional folk and fairy tales, these are performance-oriented for reading aloud at home or in public, memorized for oral interpretation, or re-told in your own words.  Primarily for older youth and grownups, these varied tales are for readers and tellers who already know Jack and those about to make
a new friend.  All the stories are about Jack—sometimes the trickster, sometimes aided by good fortune, but all fun.  They are Smoky Mountain Jack Tales.
