Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Southern, indeed. This collection of some 200 works, created over four decades, depicts the American South in all its splendor: its landscapes, its people, its urban character, and more. Golden is immensely skilled at capturing the region's spirit not only because of his emotional attachment (he hails from Louisiana) but also because he knows how to take any small thing and turn it into a symbol.
