Parrish's understanding of the African sources of African-American culture on the Georgia coast was far in advance of most thinking at the time. . . . Her deep understanding and abiding respect for African-American culture is far more striking to the modern reader than are her occasional nods to the shibboleths of the fashionable criticism of her era.--Charles Joyner
A valuable contribution to our knowledge of American Negro folklore and folksong.--"New York Times Book Review"
A book of considerable merit . . . seemingly done with as much affection as musical and intellectual interest.--"Boston Globe"
Parrish has made a contribution not so much in what she has collected and published but in showing an unwilling world what is necessary to be done to understand these people and their contributions.--"Journal of Negro History"
