Julia Montgomery Street. Fiddler’s Fancy. New York: Follett Publishing Co., 1955.

In this novel for children, the arrival of a traveling peddler breaks the tedium of a small mountain community. Peddler O’Halloran has the usual array of goods for sale, but he is also a fiddle player who entertains as well as sells.  The  McCrary family enjoys his company, and when he leaves young Angeline gives him a comforter with a pattern on it that she calls “Fiddler’s Fancy.”
