The Union Quilters (Elm Creek Quilts Novels (Dutton Hardcover)) Hardcover – 22 Feb 2011
This Book Is Bound with "Deckle Edge" Paper
You may have noticed that some of our books are identified as "deckle edge" in the title. Deckle edge books are bound with pages that are made to resemble handmade paper by applying a frayed texture to the edges. Deckle edge is an ornamental feature designed to set certain titles apart from books with machine-cut pages. See a larger image.

The author paints a very vivid picture of how it was to live through those times. Particularly poignant was the story of the black man who desperately wanted to fight for the country, but was turned away because of his colour. In these days, this seems unbelievable, and people certainly had a very different view of life then. Eventually he did fight for his country as did many other black men.
There is the ongoing saga of the Bergstroms, and the refusal of the family head to fight, and the effect this has on his wife.
Of course there is much quilting going on at the same time, and many descriptions of quilts. I believe it is possible now to purchase a book with some of these to make yourself.
Whilst it has nothing to do with the content of the book, the deckle edge is a bit strange till you get used to it.
