About the Author
William Alexander Percy died the year after his autobiography was published. During World War I he fought in France with the American 37th Division, rose to the rank of captain, and was awarded the Croix de Guerre with gold star. With his father, U.S. Senator LeRoy Percy, he was one of the leaders in the successful 1922 fight against the Ku Klux Klan in Greenville, and he headed the local Red Cross unit during the disastrous Mississippi River flooding of 1927. He was the author of four books of poetry and practiced law in Greenville until his death.

Percy certainly reflects the 'Southern' aristocratic view. Carving the wilderness to a way of life. The Percy vision manifested itself in the plantations of Greenville & the monster riverport on 'Ole man river.'
But it goes to their very soul. The idiosyncrasies make it a great read, just for the flavor.
