This 1867 landmark book represents the first systematic effort to collect and preserve the songs sung by the plantation slaves of the Old South. Most of the 130 songs, arranged by geographic area, were recorded directly from the singers themselves. Includes the melody line and all known verses to each song, directions for singing, and a commentary on each.
