This is a great book. Nominally a story of the kaolin area of Georgia it is much more. I am somewhat familiar with area, its people, and the author. It, however, is a very good social study of the po'blacks and whites of one of Georgia's poorest areas. From Depression days to the present it spells out their oppression.

Very interesting and informative. I recently moved to the area in GA that this book is about and realize now why some of the things that go on here, are the way they are. Well written with lots of source information. Kind of depressing too.

This book reveals a feudal system still in existence in southern Georgia today. It will infuriate you, whether you live in the state or not. It's a great example of investigative journalism (obviously, the first reviewer works for the Kaolin companies who have been robbing the poor blacks and even the state of Georgia blind for decades!) But be warned, this book will make you angry -- at the abuses, the coverups, the lack of governmental backbone to take on this industry. But maybe if enough of us read this book, something, finally, will change.

It is not fictional. This is real life of the treachery and the bad hand these land owners and farmers were dealt by the kaolin industry. It is said that the owners were mistreated and mislead, then trapped in the deal for years.

Very interesting. Only issue is that it reads like a bunch of newspaper articles strung together. After reading, it made me take a second look at middle GA.
