Forgotten America

Dec 21, 2022

What do Sojourner Truth, Davy Crockett, Ichabod Crane, and a Cherokee river dragon have in common? They are all characters in John Hood’s second historical-fantasy novel, Forest Folk. 
John Hood is president of the John William Pope Foundation, a Raleigh-based grantmaker that supports public policy organizations, educational institutions, arts and cultural programs, and humanitarian relief in North Carolina and beyond. He is also a newspaper columnist, historian, and an author with a deep passion for both the American Founding and speculative fiction. 
In this episode, John joins Garrett for his second time as a guest of the podcast, to discuss his latest novel, Forest Folk, the perfect recipie for blending folklore and early American History, and ask the real Ichabod Crane to please stand up.
