Warmth, wisdom, and wit.

Roland B. Vendeland

Born and Bred in Western Pennsylvania

Over the years I have listened to the yarns of storytellers from the highlands of North Carolina, the hollers of East Tennessee, and the mountains of West Virginia. These tellers revel in their tales of interesting characters and humorous anecdotes giving the impression that unless y'all grow up in some remote, elevated part of this county you simply have nothing of interest to share. I have grown up in the foothills of Western Pennsylvania, have known dozens of interesting people, and witnessed scores of humorous predicaments. I am convinced that homilies ain't jus' fur hill folk anymore. So please join me, Roland, The Storyteller, as I share my personal tales of being Born and Bred in Western Pennsylvania.
