The author claimed to be only a "compiler" of these stories provided by Negro story-tellers. The chief ingredient is humor and a kind of authenticity of the familiar for Southerners. This is a monument to the good naturedness of a people who faced only affliction, enslavement, and relentless subordination. The volume, written in the dialect of the oppressed, has "its solemn, not to say melancholy, features". [xvii] This was the compiler's rebuke to the publishers inclusion of the work in the inventory of humorous publications.
