All ears for frontier tales

Published on August 8, 2017 2:30PM

Master storyteller Doug Force will return to the Lincoln City Cultural Center this Sunday, Aug. 13, to share a collection of tales from the fur trapping era.

Appearing in costume, Force will provide a brief historical context for the life and work of a Mountain Man in the wilds of the Rocky Mountains as well as the tall tale reflections of those intrepid woodsmen.

This month’s presentation focuses on the importance of having a partner to depend on through thick and thin. These campfire tales will highlight the unusual advantages and disadvantages of teaming in early 1800s frontier life.

The storytelling session will run from 2 to 3 pm at 540 NE Hwy. 101. Questions are welcome and audience participation is encouraged.

Admission is free but donations are accepted to support the work of the cultural center. Refreshments will be served during a short intermission.
