"This story of the devotion of a Southern darky to his "white folks" is one of the great classics of Southern literature-a book beloved by hundreds of thousands. It was in 1865 that Eneas became separated from his master and started out to look for the home plantation. For eight years he wandered the South-a veritable pilgrimage through the wilderness. His adventures are humorous, yet tug at the heart strings, and he and the people he encounters emerge vivid and real. The whole brilliantly portrays an attitude and a way of life of a time not so long past, and does it with unforgettable charm, whimsy and brevity. " 44 pages.

Good in Poor dust jacket. Binding edgeworn in worn/torn DJ; Green hardback binding. Drawings, map endpapers. Fictitious account of Black man's travels in South recounted in correspondence of those who met him; Small 8vo 7½"-8" tall; 38 pages.
While some of the language and content may be offensive in our era, I suspect that this book may represent a relationship between Black and White people of the 1860's in the South that had a depth that few have today.
