"Vance Randolph was perfectly constituted for his role as the chronicler of Ozark folkways. As a self-described "hack writer," who first visited the region as a child with his middle-class parents, he was as much a figure of the margins as his chosen subjects. And his essentially romantic identification with the Ozarks--encouraged by the editors of the era--was always tempered by his scientific training and his contrarian nature. In The Ozarks, originally published in 1931, we have Randolph's first book-length portrait of the people he would spend the next half-century studying. The full range of Randolph's interests--in language, in hunting and fishing, in folksongs and play parties, in moonshining--is on view in this book that made his name; forever after he was "Mr. Ozark," the region's preeminent expert who would, in collection after collection, enlarge and deepen his debut effort. With a new introduction by Robert Cochran, The Ozarks , an image shaper in its day, a cultural artifact for decades to come, this wonderful book is as entertaining as ever." --Back cover

This is the story of a generation that is passing, of a people whom I have known only in their latter years. No character in this book is the portrait of any actual person. The data here presented are not fabrications of mine. I have recorded the tales that were told to me in backwoods cabins, around wilderness campfires, on long rides over mountain trails, beside little stills on big hollows.The songs included are true folk-songs which I have heard in the back hills, sung by people who did not learn them from any book. The superstitions mentioned are genuine folk-beliefs

In 1941-42, Vance Randolph, one of the pre-eminent folksong collectors of the last century, lugged what was then called a portable recording machine into the Ozarks and captured on disc over 800 songs, ballads and instrumentals. This CD presents, for the first time, a sampling from Randolph's immense treasure trove. Most of the selections have never been commercially available before now; and, indeed, some of the songs and ballads have not been previously recorded by any singers
