Korson, George G. Black Rock: Mining Folklore of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1960.

This is the last of five books that pioneering folklorist George Korson (1899–1967) published on the history of Pennsylvania folklore, folkways, and music.  Like the others, it richly documents stories told and music played by Pennsylvanians, both named and anonymous, about work and life in the Keystone state.
