Two audio cassettes. Interview with raccoon trapper, farmer, and former tupentiner Anders Woodard. He discusses his history as a raccoon trapper; farmer; turpentiner; process of gathering the gum for turpentine; early life in Tallahassee, making syrup; use of turpentine spirits and rosin; trapping, skinning, cleaning and selling raccoon hides; training dogs for hunting; deer, alligator and bear hunting; and working during the depression. In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
