Editor Reviews
From the front Cover This haunting, harrowing, gloriously moving recollection of a life on the American margin is the story of Rick Bragg, who grew up dirt-poor in northeastern Alabama, seemingly destined for either the cotton mills or the penitentiary, and instead became a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times. It is the story of Bragg's father, a hard-drinking man with a murderous temper and the habit of running out on the people who needed him most. But at the center of this soaring memoir is Bragg's mother, who went eighteen years without a new dress so that her sons could have school clothes and picked other people's cotton so that her children wouldn't have to live on welfare alone. Evoking these lives--and the country that shaped and nourished them--with artistry, honesty, and compassion, Rick Bragg brings home the love and suffering that lie at the heart of every family. The result is unforgettable.

   A Must-read for Everyone, Not Just the Southerner
I picked this book up out of boredom, and now it will never leave my shelf. It took about 4 pages and I was hooked! After about 12, I knew it was a favorite. I want Rick Bragg to tell all my stories! His talent is unmatched. I dare you not to love this memoir.
