“Perhaps the most memorable federally financed book to come out of the New Deal."--Theodore Rosengarten

As a history buff and native of the State of Georgia specifically the Coast, this book was especially interesting to me because I remembered hearing from elderly relatives about some of the people profiled in the book. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the information I learned.
