    If you've ever lived in the South

    If you've ever lived in the south, you'll know how true to life these characters are. Dr Evans brings to life a period that is rarely studied in history. She focuses on the the schism that existed between the young and the old, the past and the future. Students and others who have thought of history as a compilation of boring events acted out by decrepit old men and women, will find this book refreshing. She has taken the fact that most of the people in the great migration were young, and used it to write a story which employs,adventure, voodoo and even murder, to tell the story of how the African-American came north.
