When I was young I can remember my mum recounting the Taily Po story to me as I cowered under the sheets. I found it absolutely terrifying!
Recently I tried to tell the story to my wife but I realised that I had forgotten large chunks of it. Well, I had a scan on t'internet and found a site dedicated to Appalacian myths, and featuring the Taily Po legend.
I was always under the impression that this story originated in central Europe. It certainly shares the kind of tone and style of some Slavic or Germanic myths. Does anyone know definatey the origins of the Taily Po legend? Could it have been carried to the US by European migrants?
