Summary
Quanstrom collects family stories and compares storytelling styles and story topics. She correlates her family members' storytelling approaches with Eleanor Long's four storytelling categories, and divides her siblings and parents into persevators, integrators, recreators, and confabulators accordingly. Quanstrom also suggests a parallel between her family's stories and Bascom's four functions of folklore, emphasizing the function of storytelling as a release valve. She concludes by analyzing common topics amidst the varieties of stories told, and highlights danger or threat as one of the most common theme. She suggests that stories arise frequently during times of danger and act as cohesive forces that help people to unite and overcome that danger
