Review:

"A masterpeice of fact-finding...the effect is more like that of an art than of a science."

John Crowe Ransom, American Review

"Dr. Johnson has sought his folk like a scientist, but he has written them with an artists spirit."

Jonathan Daniels, Saturday Review



"Professor Johnson's excellent reporting is often as full of human interest as any of the fine fiction lately written on this subject."

—Samuel Gaillard Stoney, New York Herald Tribune
