Overview

Watering the Sahara: Recollections of Paul Green from 1894 to 1937 by James R. Spence

Based primarily on previously unpublished interviews with Paul Green, Watering the Sahara is a compelling study that chronicles the dramatist's life from childhood in rural Harnett County to military service in World War I, the beginnings of his career as both educator and writer, his work as a Hollywood screenwriter, and the theater collaborations that culminated in the creation of the symphonic drama The Lost Colony. Extensive quotation from the interviews provides the reader with new insight into the complexity of North Carolina's leading playwright.
