We always hope that the stories we share with you on The Apple Seed spark memories for you to share with the people that you love. Sometimes those memories are sparked by listening to personal stories, and other times by listening to tall tales and fairy tales. So sit back, relax, and get ready to have the memories wash over you as you listen to stories about Kokeshi Dolls, Roosters, and Sapsuckers.  On today's episode, enjoy the following: "The Buffalo's Wife" by Odds Bodkin from The Wise Little Girl (14:01) When a terrible famine hits the land, a young girl strikes a bargain with a buffalo in order to save her people. Every story from Odds Bodkin is a dramatic, musical adventure. You're sure to enjoy it.  "The Tale of a Kokeshi Doll" by Motoko from Tales of Now & Zen (15:21) The wonderful Mime and Storyteller, Motoko, is up next to share the story of a man who finds a doll that seems harmless enough, but in fact holds an ominous secret that puts the man in danger. Will he be able to escape the danger? "Chanticleer the Rooster" by Jim Weiss from Animal Tales (15:53) Here's a story told by Jim Weiss from Geoffrey Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales". It's about a rooster named Chanticleer and his efforts to stave off a hungry fox.  "Red-Breasted Sapsucker" by Pete Griffin from Welcome to Alaska: Tales from The Tongass Forest & Beyond (5:39) To wrap up today's episode we thought we'd bring you a story from Naturalist and Storyteller, Pete Griffin, about how to keep a red-breasted sapsucker from waking up your neighbors at three in the morning.
