I thought, and still do think, that Lemon was a very good guitarist. Gary disagreed. (laughter) Gary started to play a very accurate pastiche of Lemon's Black Snake Moan, and Gary just opened his mouth and let out with this incredible blood curdling scream, and then he stops and says, "Man, he couldn't have sung no louder if someone was cutting his throat". He was merciless - Reverend Gary Davis, by Dave Van Ronk

'On the Trail of Negro Folk-Songs' Dorothy Scarborough pdf

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."
