Sugaree Rising Paperback – February 1, 2013
|New from||Used from|
"Sugaree Rising is a remarkable first novel, intelligent, sensitive, thoughtful, perceptive. It is the story of a small, tightly knit, interrelated group of South Carolina Blacks who established their own community after the Civil War. They bring with them the traditional beliefs of their slave ancestors, the old ways and the old gods. In the South Carolina of the 1930 their descendants still honor the traditions of their African forefathers, living their days in essentially parallel universes, the everyday and the spiritual, both real, both shifting back and forth like a kaleidoscope. It is an extraordinarily exhilarating way of perceiving the world."
-- Shirley Ann Grau, Winner of the 1965 Pulitzer Prize For Fiction
