Porte Crayon delighted in drawing innyard loafers, black cooks, tidelands fishermen, and vistas of southern resorts and squatters' cabins. Some of these are published here for the first time from his sketchbooks. Around his realistic sketches he wrote his complementary travelogues on such subjects as his adventures in the Blackwater Falls region of what is now West Virginia, in the Dismal Swamp, and in the gold regions of North Carolina.

Originally published in 1959.
