Dust Tracks on a Road - Recommendation

Dust Tracks on a Road- an Autobiography
by Zora Neale Hurston
First HarperPerennial 1996
ISBN 0-06-092168-4

From the back cover:

First published in 1942 at the crest of her popularity as a writer, this is Zora Neale Hurston's imaginative and exuberant account of her rise from childhood poverty in the rural South to a prominent place among the leading artists and intellectuals of the Harlem Renaissance. The very personal, perhaps larger-than-life portrait that Hurston paints of herself offers a rare, poignant, and often audacious glimpse of the public and private persona of a very public and private artist, writer, anthropologist, and champion of black heritage. 'Dust Tracks on a Road' is a book full of wit and wisdom of a proud and spirited woman who started off low and climbed high: "I have been in sorrow's kitchen and licked out all the pots. Then I have stood on the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows with a harp and a sword in my hands".

Peace,
"Guided by the Ancestors"
