Description
"'You ask for a story, I will tell you one, fact for fact and true for true...' So begins 'Crook-neck Dick,' one of twenty-three stories in this beguiling collection of Charleston folk tales. Derived from African-American legends, these haunting fables have entertained generations of Charlestonians with their storytelling magic." -- Back cover.
