Content descriptions

General Note:
"This is a Borzoi book"--T.p. verso.
Summary, etc.:
"The Mississippi Delta, fabled "South of the South," is replete with plantations carved from the wilderness, rich soil and King Cotton, with field chants and blues laments, violence and tragedy. In this austerely beautiful landscape, by 1902, Reconstruction is being encroached upon by Jim Crow. And in the town of Loring, the tenure of a black postmistress is compromised when the prodigal son of a once mighty planting family returns home."
