Book Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket

Beige cloth with black titles on front along with illustration of black farmer, alligator, reeds and other plants. Spine is darkened by sun, but front and back covers retain original color with light aging. Small area of damage with minor loss at top of spine. Interior has minimal toning. Book is square and securely bound, actually feels as though it was never read. Solid copy. This book is Jones' collection of stories told mostly from the point of view of former slaves. These stories are written in what is essentially Gullah dialect and are harder to read than Harris's Uncle Remus. They also lack the narrative framework of Uncle Remus. Interesting and important collection of stories. DeRenne II 868. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 171 pages
