Hansen book, 'A Florida Fiddler,' published
Dr. Gregory Hansen, English and Folklore, has published a book. "A Florida Fiddler: The Life and Times of Richard Seaman" is a musical life history of a 97-year-old fiddler and storyteller from Kissimmee Park, Fla. The book presents Seaman's life history in relation to the tunes that he played and the tall tales, legends, and stories of local history that he related to audiences in folk festivals, schools, and other events in the Jacksonville area. Noted folklorist and scholar Henry Glassie says, "Gracefully written, richly detailed, Hansen's book is a treasure." The book is available from the University of Alabama Press, http://www.uapress.ua.edu/.
