When Pamela Bordelon was researching the Florida Federal Writers Project, she discovered writings in the collection that were unmistakably from the hand of Zora Neale Hurston, one of the leading writers of the Harlem Renaissance. Over half of the works included here have not been published before or are only available in the Library of America edition of Hurston's works. Hurston's novels draw upon her interest in folklore, particularly that of Florida. Here is seen the roots of that work, from the tale of the monstrous alligator living in a local lake to her recording of folk songs on her work in children's games and the black church. There are also controversial essays on race and the work of black artists.
