Editorial Reviews

?The subtitle Bio-Bibliography' suggests somewhat less than this book is. It is indeed a biography in a very loose sense (a strict biography of a man who may not have existed could not be very substantial), and an extensive bibliography (and discography) as well. But its chief contribution to contemporary scholarship is Williams's insightful discussions on the myth of John Henry and the role of that myth in twentieth-century American society--both black and white. . . . Williams's most important contribution . . . offers her own insights into the heroic appeal of John Henry.?-JEMFQ
