John E. "Frail" Joines was a master tale teller from Wilkes County, N.C. on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains. His hunting tales, stories from World War II, and religious narratives, and the life stories of Frail Joines and his wife Blanche mirror changes that swept away much of the traditional culture of his Appalachian rual community in a single generation and show the character and values with which his family met these circumstances.
