Based on a Jack tale, a slave story-song, and a morality tale, these stories reflect the depth, scope, and humor of early American storytelling. The first story, “Foolish Jack,” is a Jack tale about Jack’s adventures when he first leaves home. The second story tells “Why Dogs Chase Cats.” The final story, “A Bundle of Troubles,” is a morality tales that teaches a valuable life lesson: count your blessings, not your troubles.
