Dwarves, Fairies, and Mermaids might sound like a strange way to teach a history and geography lesson, but John Hood took this challenge head-on and achieved the objective in spades with his book, “Mountain Folk”.
John is a newspaper columnist, historian, and foundation executive with a deep passion for both the American Founding and speculative fiction. In this book, he brings it all together in a thrilling tale that not only appeals to a person’s desire for fantasy but also keeps them grounded in intellectual honesty and curiosity.
In the podcast, we deep-dive into the book, its genre, why it’s important, why use fiction to illustrate history, mythology – including that which is uniquely the U.S., historical people, geography, his inspiration, and, of course, ties to Virginia.
