Subject: RE: Folklore: significance of huckleberries
Hollywood introduced the expresion, as far as I can tell, in a confrontation between gambler Doc Holiday & gunslinger Johnny Ringo when Hoilday tells Ringo "I'll be your huckleberry". I've tried to find the origins & meaning of that saying but only got as far as the movies.
