Default What is a folk guitar?

Can someone define a folk guitar for me? From the pictures I've seen, they seem to have a body intermediate between a dreadnought and parlor or classic, and often look to have a skinny neck. Is that it? I grew up on folk music (Joan Baez, etc.) but never gave much thought to special guitar needs. Thinking about potential travel guitars got me wondering.
