In Slave Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands (1942), the song collector, Lydia Parrish, described this dance as she witnessed it in the Georgia Sea Islands: "March aroun', Jump across!, Get the eye!. In her book, Letters and Diary of Laura M. Towne, a letter to her family describes: Tonight I have been to a "shout," which seems to me certainly the remains of some old idol worship. The Negroes sing a kind of chorus,-three standing apart to lead and clap,-and then all the others go shuffling around in a circle following one another with not much regularity, turning round stamping so that the whole floor swings. I never saw anything so savage.

Globus
I particularly enjoyed "slave songs" because I traveled to the area where the story takes place.
It arrived in good condition and promptly.

Slave songs arrived promptly and in good condition. This is a book that I needed to do some research on the GA sea islands, and it fulfilled a need that I have on that topic.

As a native Sea Islander a few of my deceased paternal relatives and former community members were profiled in this book. I enjoyed reading the information on how the Field Songs of the enslaved people of color were preserved.

Wonderful history. Recommended for serious collectors.

My grandfather migrated from these islands (Allen Quarterman) to Philadelphia, PA where my dad (AQ Jr.) was born. Dad ultimately moved and settled in Washington, DC. This book gave me moments of history of the Quarterman family.

This book, a collection of indigenous songs reprinted from last century's original edition, offers a rare and precious glimpse into the old-time life and culture of the African-American residents of the Georgia Sea Islands -- a way of life now almost totally wiped out by the onslaught of tourism and related development.
Lydia Parrish, wife of famous painter and illustrator Maxfield Parrish, made it her life's work to discover and help preserve a unique culture which even then, nearly a century ago, was showing signs of fading away under the pressures of modern life.
Parrish faithfully collected and recorded traditional music of Georgia Sea Island residents, most of whom were escaped or freed slaves who gravitated here to make new homes off the beaten track of a society with no ready place for them. This book, with its lyrics, scores, and editorial notes, along with Parrish's other work in this arena, were the keys to keeping this tradition from fading completely from national consciousness. She also promoted the founding of the Georgia Sea Island Singers (whose unique audio recordings of this material can also be found at amazon.com).
Fans of folk music, American history, African-American history, slave lore, anthropology and even Maxfield Parrish will find this book a rare and unusual item for the bookshelf and, if musically inclined, for the voice and ear as well.

Said Pete Seeger (about Living in the Country) "I learned it from my sister forty years ago in 1956. She got it out of a book by Lydia Parish called “Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands”. I was fooling around on the guitar in the D tuning (6th string down one whole tone). I started with another song, “Pay Me My Money Down”, and gradually improvised a new tune off of it. I may never compose a better piece of guitar music (I’d like to but I probably won’t.)"
