TALL TALES FROM THE HUNTERS' CAMP

Tall Tales from the Hunters' Camp is a two-part radio program dramatizing comic stories by nineteenth century Southern writer William Gillmore Simms. The program was funded by the Southern Humanities Media Fund and produced at the studios of South Carolina Educational Radio. The first story "How Sharp Snaffles Got His Capital and Wife" features a neer-do-well hunter with longing eyes for the squire's daughter. In "Bald Head Bill Bauldy and How He Went Through the Flurriday Campaign," an unlikely soldier finds himself fighting with the U.S. Army against the Seminoles in Florida, becomes company cook and is then kidnapped by alligators who must feed their hungry mermaid queen. Produced by Anne Blythe Meriwether and the Seajay Society with the cooperation of the Trustus Theater Company of Columbia, SC. Adapted and directed by Robert Clem with music score by Donald Stark.
