Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An ambitious book that seeks to explore the inner thought, feelings, perspectives that Kentuckians, black and white, have of each other." -- Bourbon Times (KY)

"Who would have thought you could get easier-to-read materials from a university press! Kudos to the University Press of Kentucky for their New Books for New Readers series." -- Feminist Bookstore News

"Strongly defined characters, taut narrative prose, sharply defined settings, and dead-on dialogue." -- Kentucky Monthly
