Review quote

"A book that henceforth every serious student of southern history and southern literature will have to take into account."-David Herbert Donald, The New Republic "A Southern Renaissance is a richer book than I can begin to convey. It is witty, learned and felt, with a relevance beyond the geographical borders of its subject." -Stephen J. Whitfield, The New Leader
