A gifted teller of tales sketches a lively picture of his boyhood
in the old tobacco section of Person County, North Carolina, just
south of the Virginia line. All the white grown-ups of the boy's
childhood were former slaveholders and former soldiers who had come
through the Civil War and had met the need for readjustment.
