Culbertson. Animal Folks

Today's free book is At the Big House: Where Aunt Nancy and Aunt 'Phrony Held Forth on the Animal Folks by Anne Virginia Culbertson and illustrated by E. Warde Blaisdell. Don't be put off by the title of this book: although it is the product of a racist era, it is at the same time a powerful testimony to the interaction between African-American and Native American storytelling traditions in the American South (specially, the Eastern Cherokee of North Carolina).

For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

The book is available at Internet Archive, Hathi Trust, and Google Books.
