There's ghost stories, stories of feuds, stories of travels, and of attempted enterprises dashed by the frequent moves of a racehorse. I believe there's only one or two mentions of an automobile. There are lots of conversations with Civil War veterans, and even a hermit from France, who lived on the side a mountain just north of Clearfield, Pennsylvania (not too far from Penn State, if you're not familiar with it).
Just a real enjoyable read, which continues to awe and inspire others, including a similar volume collected in the 1970-80s by a professor at Mansfield College (Flatlanders & Ridgerunners). Get 'em both!
