Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The realistic, true Mississippi comes to life within the pages of this book. Patrick Smith has penned an outstanding novel."
Jackson Daily News
Man's inhumanity to man is an important part of this story, but it is not the whole story. There are shocking brutality and violence of many sorts, but more than all that, there is a sensitive overall view of whites and Negroes that takes into account almost every facet of life in a south Mississippi town.
Clarion Ledger
Of all the books written in the decade of the 1960s about the Civil Rights movement, the changing times and the enigma of Mississippi, Patrick Smith has turned out the most vivid and most violent and most accurate reflection of the times.
Mississippi Press
The author has unique way with words they are leaves of feeling reaped from the seed of the heart.
