Recorded in Georgia during the 1930s, the slave narratives collected in On Jordan's Stormy Banks offer first-person accounts of antebellum plantation life, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. "Some may find the descriptions of slavery compiled within these pages to be puzzling," editor Andrew Waters cautions. "Many of the men and women are frank about the harsh conditions they lived during slavery, but just as many appear to look back upon their experiences as slaves with a sense of nostalgia."
