Product description


"A fascinating account of the black community's gradual political awakening."

"[Greene] writes with the lyricism of a poet and the skill of a novelist.... A rare reading experience."

"An exciting book about the failures of idealism in America in the last decade and a half.... Poetic and picaresque."

"In a cautionary tale as wonderfully knotty as a plank of Georgia pine, Greene forcefully marks the danger in confusing ideals with those who preach them and thereby extends the import of her story far beyond the boundaries of little McIntosh County." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
