Title: 'On the Trail of Negro Folk-Songs' Dorothy Scarborough pdf
Post by: TenBrook on November 16, 2017, 01:04:45 PM
Hi all,
I don't believe this has been shared here before. I'd heard of this work and vaguely remember looking for an inexpensive copy before but lo and behold there's a free pdf version on the Internet Archive:

Wikipedia has this to say of Dorothy Scarborough:
"Emily Dorothy Scarborough (January 27, 1878 ? November 7, 1935) was an American writer who wrote about Texas, folk culture, cotton farming, ghost stories and women's life in the Southwest."
