Farewell to swamp angels, cane brakes, and chills; Farewell to sage and sassafras and corn dodger pills.
"Cowboy Songs" by Various
I saw the bones hanging in the sassafras tree more than two months afterwards, and the last time that I was ever in these swamps.
"Fifty Years in Chains" by Charles Ball
