(African-American) McRee, Patsie. The Kitchen and the Cotton Patch.

Illus, with drawings of African Americans working in the South, by K. Burke. Dec. green cloth lettered in yellow. First Edition. Atlanta: Cullom & Ghertner, 1948.

Poems in “negro dialect” by the daughter of a former landowner for whom numerous African Americans worked in post-slavery Georgia, accompanied by recipes (also in dialect). According to McRee, they were treated well and were extraordinarily happy (a typical myth many direct descendants of Southern landowners chose to believe). Near fine.
