Epigraph
Dedication
To Rayna Green
First words
Victor Hugo is said to have replied to all over-nice criticism of his fabulous, chapter-long disquisition on the word "merde" in "Les Miserables" (1862) -- the date at which the presumably recent New Freedom therefore really began -- with the observation that the subject in question. is both natural and necessary, in fact, indispensable, and has "all the innocence of a poor man's arse seen under his too skimpy shirt."

Book description
Volume I (folksongs and music) of an historic collection of bawdy folklore from the Ozarks. Randolph was the pre-eminent scholar in this area and compiled extensive files on the culture and patrimony of that part of the United States. This book is heavily referenced and includes the context from which the materials were derived (times, dates, original narrators).
