John HeadIn Homelands and WaterwaysAdele Logan Alexander has compiled and extraordinarily well-researched narrative of the American history that swirled around her ancestors. It offers the most intimate details of family life as Alexander captures the currents of cultural change that swept the nation. She shows that not all free-born American blacks lived in the North during the era of slavery, and that virulent racism among soldiers in the Civil War wasn't limited to the ranks of the Confederates. Her voluminous collection of facts conveys the tastes, textures and tenor of the times. General-interest readers drawn to fascinating family stories will be pleased.
