Fairy Stories, Myths and Legends - Home American Lore, Legends and Campfire Tales Around the campfire. From the beginning of time, people have told stories, regaling their friends and families with tales of adventure, hard times, interesting people, frightening experiences and everyday life. Sometimes these were truths, others exaggerations, and occasionally nothing more than tall tales. The more interesting of these narratives were passed around from friend to friend and from father to son, sometimes altering along the way or growing in strength to the point that they became legends, folklore, or questionable myths. Oral history, proverbs, jokes, and popular beliefs were interwoven into music, dance, cultures, and sometimes even into history itself. American History is filled with folklore, Native American mythology, and real truths that make for wonderful campfire tales.
