Books by This Author
Songs often tell stories. African American lullabies sung during slavery were a part of the author’s life, and are retold here with a storyteller’s love of sound. Quilts illustrate the lyrics with a note from McGill whose rich voice is included on a music CD as part of this absorbing package.
Alice McGill retells the tales she heard growing up in North Carolina with the verve and informality of a storyteller. Some are familiar, others are less well known, but all involve Bruh (Brer) Rabbit and his companions from the lore of the southern United States.
