Gonzales. With Aesop (in Gullah)

Today's free book is With Aesop along the Black Border by Ambrose E. Gonzales. For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image. This is a version of Aesop's fables in the Gullah dialect, and you can read about Ambrose Gonzales and his publications in Gullah at Wikipedia. (And for a harsh reminder of Southern thoughts about race at the time, take a look at the preface to this book, which refers to the "kindly" institution of slavery...!)

The book is available at Hathi Trust.
