Botkin, B. A. (ed)  
A Treasury of Southern Folklore: Stories, Ballads, Traditions, and Folkways of the People of the South (Maryland Edition)
 Picture
Publisher: Crown Publishers, 1949 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Poor. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall SIGNED "B. A.Botkin" on front endpaper. Edited, with an introduction by B. A. Botkin; foreword by Douglas Southall Freeman. "Here is the South - the glamorous, gracious, rambunctious, contentious, warm-hearted South. Here are the rebel yells and the Negro blues, the magnolias blooming and the pot likker brewing. Here's Dixie - from Maryland's Eastern Shore and the Tidewater of Virginia to the broad Mississippi and deep in the heart of Texas. Here's the South as Southerners know it and tell about it and sing about it. This is a book rich with the drama and color and tradition of the ante-bellum aristocracy of the Bluegrass, the Tidewater, the Low Country and Creole Louisiana - jam-packed with the wonderful lore and incomparable music of the Negro, with the fun and gaiety and simple wisdom of the rural folk of the backwoods and back-waters, the river bottoms, swamps, and bayous, the hills and valleys. Here are more than 500 stories and more than 75 folksongs, presenting for the first time the full cast of characters of the amazingly varied South - heroes like Patrick Henry, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, Stonewall Jackson and the almost godlike Robert E. Lee; outlaws and pirates like Murtell, Jean Lafitte and Blackbeard; poor whites, Crackers, slaves, Cajuns, Gullahs, Seminoles, Cherokee, raftsmen, pioneers and priests and hellfire-and-damnation preachers, gamblers, roustabouts, cotton pickers and oyster shuckers, colonels, belles and beauties.." 776 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is separating at rear fold; thus, poor condition.
