Information from others on some other boards suggests this guy is a long time troll, in the Ed Good category, that seems to just keep popping up every so often with his brand of BS.
I have not heard of him before though.

Fellow Forum members,
I believe Mark-21's initial reply is a sound one! WOW...
I was an undergraduate @ Mansfield State College circa 1968-72 & befriended an English Professor (Glimm) who had his classes study & interview the people of the Pine Creek Valley of 100 year old Folk Lore; he actually had the work published by the Pittsburgh Univ. Press Titled " Flat Landers (city slickers) & Ridge Runners (Pine Valley & Mountain folks): the stories recited in this Tome
(Talked of Everything from Hooped Snakes to Moses the Moonshiner - who told the Philadelphia Judge that he in fact wasn't the Moses who made the Sun go Dark, but was the Moses that made the Moon Shine - rumor has it the Judge actually had to let him go for his frank answer!!! So let's leave it that we give Pine Creek Dave this status of Pine Creek a folk lore, hell he was brought up this way and doesn't know any better? So we leave it as just WOW an leave it be!!! As another anecdote in the book speaks of the two Flat Landers from Phila. Having shot a deer began dragging it by the hind legs Babi to where their car was parked; well after a while they ran across a friendly Ridge Runner who politely told them if they grabbed the buck by the horns & dragged it by the lay of the fur it would make things go a lot easier? Well sure enough they went around grabbed it by the horns & damned it went a lot smoother, only problem after another couple of hours they still hadn't reached the car; at which time they came to realize they hadn't turned the Deer around!#^%€£... Enough said...

LLG, that book title sounds familiar. Did it describe ridgerunners that had one leg shorter than the other; those whose left leg was the shorter could only walk the mountains counterclockwise and vice-versa?

kbg,
Not positive as it's been a while since I've last read it? However, that sounds just like those novel Folk Tales that abound in this great historic read of the folks who were born & raised ah 100 years or so before the early 70's in this laid back hard knock region? Book was well researched for collecting such novel information as Glimm (Irish decent) took one of his sabbaticals in Scotland to learn the various techniques for collecting & authenticating just such unique folk lore & tales.
Jim (who came from White Plains NY, & who's father was a White Collar lawyer) and himself had a PHD in English came fresh out of Grad school @ Texas Christian - as well as being a Tennis Pro at the Bath & Tennis Club on Long Island Dune Road (where He gave me my first opportunity to teach Tennis) was quite the City Slicker himself. However, I'll never forget his transformation while living in Wellsboro, PA and the Hunter & Fly fisherman we became while plying Pine Creek forest & streams - Big Pine & the Runs Cedar & Slate - hunting the forest for deer, bear, birds - Grouse & Turkey along w/ fishing for Brook, rainbow & brown trout; it was inevitable as He learned to play the Sqweeze Box & Banjo and play in the Hill Billy Bands of the region that he himself became one of the very Flat Landers that his research uncovered in this fantastic region in the late 60 thru early 70 and 80's...
Lefty/Lefever/Guy,
And those were "the Good Ole Days" of Ridge Runners & Flat Landers of the region - that to this Day is called "Gods Country"[/quote]

LLG, it's been at least 20 years since I read that book (I'm assuming it's the same one). A friend of my father has had a place to the west, near Roulette, since the 1960s. He's got several good friends among the locals, and they know the terminology but I always found "flatlander" to be an odd term. We were from Pittsburgh and it's anything but flat there. One of the ridgerunners turned out to be afraid to drive in Pgh, presumably because of the volume of traffic and not grade of the roads themselves.

Kgb,
I agree as I grew up and hunted in my teens in Pittsburgh. Also I came to realize how Hiily it was there only after returning after 5 years of College in Mansfield, PA where I hunted & fly fished w/ the Author of the Book. Finally, I think the book references the cities like Phila. & other nearby NJ cities as to the term Flatlanders or actually makes more of a reference to their conditioning compared to hard lifestyle of the Ridgerunners of that era?
At any rate It was a great period in my life and shaped my life style even to this day; as I'm retired and spend my days Fly fishing & bird hunting along w / collecting & using Lefever shotguns and vintage Bamboo fly rods & reels, just as long as it keeps me away from the Politics of this day & age!!!
Left/Lefever/Guy,
Amen!!!
