87 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations, music notation. "A treasure for collectors of folklore and for the young of all ages, this book has a rare distinction. As Edwin C. Kirkland points out in the foreword, 'The author is both the collector and the source of the material, and this gives a particular character to the book that is impossible for most other collections of folklore. It has an authenticity, a sincerity, and an air of being alive and present.' Music as well as the words to nineteen songs are now included in this expanded edition of (the book), originally published in 1957. Whenever possible, the source of the material is identified, thus adding an important record for scholars of our cultural heritage. The author's love for the Great Smoky Mountains and the people there is evident throughout the book. She has recorded a way of life for all to remember or to learn about."
