Review quote

"This monograph, as moving and complex as the simple poetry of its eloquent title, will richly repay the attention of southern historians... [Santino's] analysis of Pullman porters is both richly descriptive and suggestive of the way in which the porters' world provides a microcosmic view of race relations that is also emblematic of the position of blacks in the larger world in which Pullman porters were part of the black elite." -- Jerrold Hirsch, Journal of Southern Historyshow more
