Danny McMillion
When Danny's four year old son, Patrick, pulled the heads off of all the tulips lining the back walk, and gravely explained to his mother that, "John did it." Danny knew that Patrick was the third generation destined to carry on the Appalachian tradition of storytelling. For you see, Patrick knew nobody named John, nor did his mother. The family tradition begun with Danny's Grandpa Adkins' fanciful talks of his boyhood in the late 1800s.

Danny McMillion has managed several public libraries around the state and is currently the Director of Raleigh County Public Libraries.


Danny performed many stories during the 2001 WV Storytelling Festival, including "The Skeleton Woman" above.
