Durning the first half of the twentieth century, Leroy Dudley, guide and spinner of tales at Chimney Pond on Maine's Mount Katahdin, enchanted countless outdoor enthusiasts with his yarns about Pamola, the Penobscot Indian god of thunder who protected the mountain. In the early thirties, Clayton Hall, a Yale Divinity School student, was so impressed by Roy Dudley's tales that he backpacked an Edison office dictating machine seven miles to spin Roy's yarns onto its wax cylinders. He planned to publish a collection of the stories; a plan that never did materialize. Years later Clayton Hall's niece, Beth Harmon, discovered the yellowing manuscript in a family attic. What resulted was this book. Read the original yarns told by Leroy Dudley, as assembled by Clayton Hall and Jane Thomas, with Elizabeth Hall Harmon. 1991 paperback, 118 pages.
