Product Details

Praise

“Recreates the texture of that terrible yet rewarding summer with impressive verisimilitude.”
Washington Post

“Remarkable…a well-researched, vivid retelling of the 1964 civil rights crusade to put Mississippi’s 200,000 disenfranchised blacks on the voting rolls…[an] important book.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Elegantly written…A fascinating look at ordinary people at their best and worst…Riveting.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch

“An amazing account of one pivotal summer in the history of civil rights…with a thriller’s pacing, the book forcefully describes the depravity and treachery behind the bombings, beatings and intimidation…and shows the physical and emotional costs of such a fight.”
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Engrossing”
The Economist
