Talk:A true account of Nayomy Wise
For Wikisource, I copied this text as given in the book Naomi Wise: Creation, Re-Creation, and Continuity in an American Ballad Tradition (ISBN 1-880849-55-0) by Eleanor Long-Wilgus, based on the notes of Wayland Hand and D.K. Wilgus. With all respect to the work of these scholars, I believe the text given below is not protected by copyright as it is derived from a public domain work without creative value added despite the obvious work of transcribing it. —unsigned comment by Illy (talk) .
