I thought the topic would be interesting especially in light of so much talk about reconcilliation in Iraq. I thought it would be instructive to read about the difficulty of healing our own deep cultural wounds. Instead this book is one repition after another. The reader does not help by his phoney, sterotypical southern accent whenever narrating a southern point of view and innocent, bewildered mode of speaking when narrating the northern senitment. The book is only caricature and vauderville.

I can only assume that the previous two reviews of this book were written by people still in denial over the southern reign of terror that followed the US Civil war. This book is a riveting account of that era in American history that has been washed from the brains of most Americans. The dramatic reading of the writings of actual participants only heightens the enjoyment.
If you have the guts to listen to Americans participating in ethnic cleansing of the blacks in the south, you will find this book facinating. And perhaps wonder why you never read about it in your high school history book!
