This book is rather like a sequel to Mr. Pittman's Jim Limber book which I bought for my grandchildren. It presents a general officer of the South in a different way - that is - in a human or humanizing way that I am afraid many will wish was not so. By relating the true-to-life story of General Jackson's evangelism, Mr. Pittman shows that many white southerners were not oppressive or hateful in their relations with non-whites. By documenting General Jackson's work with the black Sunday School class, Mr. Pittman shows what many refuse to believe: that genuine concern and love across racial lines existed in the old south.
