Fabulous book on life in the south during the 1840s 50s Written from the early life of the author it is what may be deemed a very politcally incorrect story But this just makes the book even better Though it is about three little girls, it is about life on a southern plantation before the War and the Reconstruction, than anything else A classic southern story.
