Dust Tracks on a Road: A Memoir by Zora Neale Hurston
Dust Tracks on a Road is the bold, poignant, and funny autobiography of novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, one of American literature’s most compelling and influential authors.
Dust Tracks on a Road was first published in 1942 at the crest of Hurston's popularity as a writer. This is an 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. This is a book full of the wit and wisdom of a proud and spirited woman who started low and climbed high.
