Three dozen slave narratives are presented in this pocket-sized book, including several that were omitted from George Rawick's monumental collection. Transcribed from interviews with ex-slaves living in Tennessee during the 1920s and 1930s, the narratives offer candid and varied recollections about slave plantation life, Civil War experiences, Reconstruction's promise and failure, and present-day social problems within the black community.
