Palmetto Country: A Classic Florida Book by Stetson Kennedy

Reprint of the 1942 edition, with an afterword update and for the first time richly illustrated with period photographs.

Stetson Kennedy headed the Florida Writer's Project unit on folklore, oral history, and social ethnic studies for the Works Progress Administration between 1937 and 1942. He traveled the cities, towns, and rural backwoods of Florida collecting oral histories, songs, and stories from a diverse cross-section of people. His work resulted in one of the first volumes in the American Folkways Series edited by Erskine Caldwell, and remains a unique and important documentation of the social history of Florida.
