DUST TRACKS ON A ROAD by Zora Neale Hurston


An Autobiography

by Zora Neale Hurston

Pub Date: Nov. 4th, 1942
ISBN: 0062004832

A refreshing, energetic autobiography of the unusual Negro author who refused to accept an inferiority complex and struggled for a successful career and a positive, constructive life. In reading her story, it is obvious that she was unusual even among her own people, from her outstanding scholastic ability, her spirited revolt against prejudice among whites and Negroes alike, her many friendships with both races, particularly with white women, including Fannie Hurst her perseverance in the search for knowledge, and her strange adventures among the Negro work gangs in southern Florida in search of folk-lore. A different kind of a book, absorbing, human, entertaining, with occasional strong flavor.
