Between 1937 and 1942, Stetson Kennedy headed the Florida Writer's Project unit on folklore, oral history, and social-ethnic studies for the Works Progress Administration. ... Among the results was what Kennedy today calls "a sort of barefoot social history of Florida," one of the first volumes in the American Folkways Series edited by Erskine Caldwell.
With intriguing facts and entertaining anecdotes, Kennedy draws us into the panorama of life in the deepest South up to the eve of World War II.
