Publisher's Summary

Four Jack Tales from the Appalachian oral tradition, recorded by a nationally accalimed storyteller. In this collection, Jack has a little trouble adjusting to the workaday world and to personal financial management. Eventually he works hard enough, but his fortunes do not seem to parallel his productivity. Jack finally has to go a bit out of his way to prove himself, meanwhile dealing with a prospective father-in-law who plays hard to get.

For Adults and Young Adults.

You do know Jack!

Don reverses the "You Don't Know Jack" because he does know Jack! Donald has exceeded my expectations.
