This is the story of Mike Todd, largely as he told it himself. It forms a true folk biography or, more exactly, an autobiography. During the years since Mike recorded his story, I have supplemented his recollections with testimony from people who knew him at various stages of his life."

Mike Todd(1877-1960) was a bear hunter, a fire observer, a water witch, a raftsman, a quarryman, a musician, a poacher, but most of all, he was a storyteller, the central Catskills most famous.
