Folk Tales, Chapters 7 through 10 Summary

Hurston is with a group of people telling stories, and over the course of the time, several stories spark other stories. The events also spark other stories. For example, someone is chided for their unwillingness to fire off a gun in what he sees as unfavorable circumstances. This sparks the story of a slave sent out to shoot a deer with the master's gun but the slave refuses to fire, saying he wasn't going to risk harming the master's gun by shooting uphill.
