1909. A wonderful, laugh-out-loud book that brings back childhood memories for many. The story is written about a real little boy who lived in Covington, Tennessee. It was written in the dialect of the time but can still be read with enjoyment. The writer of the first volume, Frances Calhoun, died after the completion of the book. The rest of the series was then created by Emma S. Sampson.
That's my rabbit foot; you won't never have no 'sease 't all an' nobody can't never conjure you if you wears a rabbit foot. This here one is the lef' hin' foot; it was ketched by a red-headed nigger with crosseyes in a graveyard at twelve er'clock on a Friday night, when they's a full moon. He give it to Aunt Cindy to tie 'roun' my nake when I's a baby. Ain't you got no abbit foot? he anxiously inquired.
