Summary, etc.: "When Roots Die" celebrates and preserves the venerable Gullah culture of the Sea Islands of the South Carolina and Georgia Coast. Entering into communities long sheltered from the world by a blazing sun and salt marshes, Patricia Jones-Jackson captures the cadence of the storyteller lost in the adventures of 'Ber Rabbit, ' records voices lifted in song or prayer, and describes folkways and beliefs that have endured, through ocean voyage and human bondage, for more than two hundred years.--Book cover.
