Editorial Reviews

The editors provide an introduction and scholarly apparatus to a collection of previously unpublished tales that constitute a major contribution to the annals of African-American folk narrative. Talley, who was a chemistry professor at Fisk University and a pioneer in African-American folklore, collected these tales during the 1920s from childhood memories of stories told during the post-Civil War era by friends and family in rural Tennessee.
