Hardback with dust jacket in VGC. Signed and dedicated by Green.
For many years Green travelled up and down his native Cape Fear River Valley in North Carolina, collecting the folklore of the people of the valley--noting down their speech, beliefs, customs, anecdotes, ballads, epitaphs, legends, proverbs, stories, superstitions, games, folk songs, and the like. The selections from this rich harvest of human laughter and tears represent Green at his best. Originally published in 1970
