12. American Folklore
http://www.americanfolklore.net/

Maintained by Sandra E. Schlosser, a freelance author, this site
contains
numerous tales of American folklore. Casting a broad net, the sections
are
organized around different themes, such as Famous Characters, Historical
Folklore, and Regional Folktales. Along with these areas, there is also
a
complete alphabetical list of all the different tales on the site. One
of
its best parts is a section on Tall Tales, which relate different
stories
about ghosts, holidays, and various places that have arisen out of the
American folklore tradition. The site is a good way to get reacquainted
with
the folklore tradition in America, while serving as a solid introduction
to
the subject for young people. [KMG]

14. St. Paul's Cathedral
http://www.stpauls.co.uk/rindex.htm

Perhaps one of the finest neo-Classical cathedrals in the world, the
current
St. Paul's cathedral is an example of the outstanding architecture of
Christopher Wren, and a testimony to his dogged persistence and passion
for
his life's work. In keeping with the attention to detail that is
indicative
of Mr. Wren's work, the St. Paul's Web site has detailed information on
visiting the cathedral, the various musical performances that it hosts,
and
an interactive timeline detailing the history of St. Paul's that extends
back to the year 604. Along with this information, the site also tells
visitors about upcoming events at the cathedral, along with an extensive
online gift shop that offers a diverse set of St. Paul's related
material
for purchase. [KMG]
