Editorial Reviews

Review

“Madigan somehow manages to tell the story of what happened with grace, purity and haunting starkness.” ―Buzz Bissinger

“A powerful book, a harrowing case study made all the more so by Madigan's skillful, clear-eyed telling of it.” ―Adam Nossiter, The New York Times Book Review

"A sobering, frightening account of what happens when that foul beast, racism, breaks its fragile leash."--Kirkus, starred review

"Madigan's skill at description, dialogue and pacing keeps the reader's interest at peak levels."--Publishers Weekly

"Madigan provides a riveting account of one of the most shameful episodes in the troubled history of race relations in the U.S. This cultural and sociological dissection of a twentieth-century tragedy makes difficult but compelling reading."--Booklist

"The story of Greenwood is written in such chilling detail and clarity that one can almost smell the smoke and hear the cries. This is historical reporting at its best."--Larry Cox, Arizona Daily Star

"The Burning is a bold and worthwhile beginning. With its richness of horrifying detail, the book compels our attention, restoring the hateful episode's ghastly but necessary claim on the public conscience."--Morning Star-Telegram

"Mr. Madigan spins a moving story...a compelling work that brings its characters to life."--Dallas Morning News

About the Author

Tim Madigan's first book, See No Evil: Blind Devotion and Bloodshed in David Koresh's Holy War, was published in 1993, followed eight years later by The Burning: Massacre, Destruction and the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921. Tim's most recent book, I'm Proud of You: My Friendship With Fred Rogers, reveals his life-altering friendship with Fred Rogers, which began in 1995 when he profiled the children's icon for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. When not writing books or newspaper stories, Tim enjoys spending time with his wife, Catherine, being a dad, playing the guitar, coaching and playing ice hockey, and backpacking in the Canadian Rockies. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
