From the Publisher
"Carmer reveals himself here as a writer of more than ordinary perceptiveness and imagination, with the power of extracting from what he sees, hears, and feels an essence which is fundamentally poetic."
—New York Times
"The 'strange country' that Carmer visited hardly exists anymore save in his pages. Alabama is a healthier, richer, more just, and better-educated place. Yet whenever I read the dazzling initial image of the book--when I see through Carl Carmer's words a blood-colored moon and pine trees standing darkly against the sky--it is possible to understand the power of that old, dark magic."
—From the Introduction by Howell Raines
