This collection of tales is framed with a story of a Yankee setting up a vineyard in North Carolina after the Civil War, and being told several tales of sorcery by an ex-slave, Uncle Julius. The dialect rendering can be annoying but if you can tolerate that, and the 'rational explanation' added to each story, this is quite an interesting little collection. Some are genuinely disturbing, and Sis' Becky's Pickaninny is far more poignantly anti-slavery than Uncle Tom's Cabin managed to be. There's a brief essay about the real folklore of plantation voodoo at the back, too.
