  • Description
This volume is an intimate collection of oral history interviews that captures the lives of the people who were once the backbone of the rural South, in this case from Bullock County, Alabama. The interviews are elevated to art by the skill of the interviewer/author, a native, who left the area after high school and became a college professor and well-known author in Kentucky but always maintained his roots in the community where he grew up.
