An interesting look into the past 8 July 2009
By Babasongbird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read this book as a child (50-some years ago). It was in my grandmother's house and had belonged to my mother. I remembered it very fondly, and I was totally shocked to see that it's still available in print. It is definitely NOT what would be considered "politically correct" in this day and age, first and foremost because it does not depict slavery as a horrible evil. It is, in fact, the complete opposite of "Uncle Tom's Cabin."

The story revolves around the three little daughters of a plantation owner in 1850s Mississippi and their adventures amongst and with the plantation folk. It's written in the vernacular of the Negroes who lived and worked on the plantation and is such that a story written like this today (rather than in 1882) would never be published. It gives a glimpse of days gone by, days that will never be repeated.

I enjoyed the story just as much now as I did when I was a little girl.

Days Gone By in the Old South 5 Feb. 2013
By Sandra Embry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love this book. I read it aloud to my family (yes, with all the right accents, being from southern Louisiana myself) and we all roared with laughter. I especially like the story about "Marse Fofer July." I would recommend this book for any families who like to read aloud, and who like politically incorrect books that would definitely not be published today.
Cajun Night Before Christmas is great, too 21 July 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One of my fondest memories of childhood was being read this book. It isn't one a child can sit down and read themselves because most won't be able to read and understand the dialect. But, to have it read to them by an adult that can go into character and talk the talk is a memorable moment. Cajun Night Before Christmas is great, too.

Fantastic book!! 12 Nov. 2008
By Skip - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a piece of history in your hands! It has stories told by slaves during the period. One of the stories in the book is the same story that Disney's Song of the South was based on. Even Disney apparently found Briar 'Coon too much for the movie and changed his character from a racoon to a bear. Overall this book really makes us realize how far we've come as a country. Slavery was such a depressing blight on our history. Books like this can never be forgotten. I would never give away my copy.

My only problem with the book is that it's written in original dialect that makes it difficult to comprehend at times.
