Slight wear to edges and corners of boards. 171 p. with glossary. Born in Savannah Jones earned a law degree in Harvard. He was ruined by the Civil War, where he led the artillery in defense at the siege of Savanah in 1864. He went north to repair his finances, but returned to Georgia in 1877. Jones collected the myths, writtten in his interpretation of the Gullah dialect. This work is on which Joel Harris later drew upon for his Brer Rabbit tales.
