Summary
  • In Following Old Fencelines: Tales from Rural Texas, Lee Winniford returns home - with a motive and a mission to recapture memories, feelings, and remnants from her childhood, especially as preserved in the lore of her family and in Hopkins County. Returning as both an artist and evaluator, the author attempts to reconcile the present and past. Winniford illustrates and interprets the culture of a small, isolated community of Texas as it existed some fifty years ago. She examines the different cultural trends and distinctive storytelling modes of both sides of her family through analogy with the two graveyards where four generations of her family are buried
  • With this collection of tales told through a variety of voices, Winniford recreates the personalities and lifestyles of the original storytellers and these situations in which their tales were shared and gives analytic insight into folklore. Folklore scholars, Texas history enthusiasts, or anyone who likes a good story is invited to join Winniford on her wonderful journey home
