More About This Textbook

Overview

The remarkable Civil War letters of a Georgia plantation family, now available in a compact, illustrated volume for new readers and for all those who so greatly admired the original monumental edition. The letters vividly recreate a period of American history unparalleled for its drama and poignancy.
From reviews of the first edition:
"No story in America's history has been so often told, or has so well stood the retelling, as that of the Old South and its destruction. But Robert Manson Myers's splendid [book] tells it as it has not been told before, in the fullness of its poignancy and tragedy." -Madison Jones, New York Times Book Review
"A great and indispensable book." -Jonathan Yardley, New Republic
"A Gone with the Wind saga.... This book is superb." -Clarence E. Olson, St. Louis Post Dispatch
"The Children of Pride is family reconstruction on a grand scale. It demonstrates how the editing of sources can become, in the hands of an imaginative scholar, the work of creative history." -Citation for the 1973 National Book Award in History.
The original version of The Children of Pride was the winner of the 1973 National Book Award in History. It was also named among the best books of 1972 by the American Library Association and by the New York Times Book Review, Saturday Review, Time, Washington Post, and Newsweek.

    Story of the Old South

    I read this book a few years back and being a Southern I was impressed with the way it was wrote. I will say that it caused tears and laughter all the way through the book. I found out a lots about what really happen in the south during the Civil War and most of these items are items we do not hear about in the history classes. The book tells of things that the south, North and even the the Slave did to destroy the south and everthing it once stood for. The murder, burning and the raping of the People of the South both mentally and physically. I will all ways enjoy reading this book and I highly reccomend the book for others to read and learn new facts frrom reading the letters of a real Southern family during, before and after the war. I believe you will be touched by the letters that was written and you will learn a lots about the south we never hear of in the history classes.
