Ray Hicks 3: Jack and the Robbers Story

Hicks, Ray 3: Jack and the Robbers Story

Everyone loves hearing the folktale of the Bremen Town Musicians, which was first made famous by the Grimm Brothers, and though borrowed from that famous legend, this "Jack Tale" is pure Appalachian when told by the legendary storyteller Ray Hicks. Here Ray tells how Jack was wrongfully "whooped" by his father and ran away from home. Then Jack meets up with an old donkey, ox, hound dog, tomcat and a rooster. They come upon a robber's house and together they prove they're not too old to outsmart the robber and end up with all his riches. 03/10DE IJSCA 20 min.
