I loved this book and I can't let that one star review go by unchallenged. I came up through the Alabama public school system and graduated from the University of Alabama, so I took required Alabama history four times. Not all of it was fascinating. I thought this little book was riveting reading. Virginia Van Der Veer Hamilton wrote a concise history of our state. Any student of Alabama history will not stop with this book, but it is a good starting point. I recommend that serious students go on to read Dr. Wayne Flynt's excellent Alabama histories.
