Annotations for Pig Who Went Home on Sunday : An Appalachian Folktale

Baker & Taylor
An Appalachian variant of "The Three Little Pigs," in which Mama Pig sends her three sons out into the world with good advice that only one of them heeds.

In this home-grown version of The Three Little Pigs, the villain is, naturally, a fox the Appalachian red fox, who any local hunter will tell you in a worthy and cunning opponent.
