Product Details

Praise

“Mr. Williamson’s photos are spellbinding and should become instant classics. Mr. Maharidge is a crusading journalist with the heart of a young man who can still look at and write about the bittersweet in life. Good for him, and good for us that he has done it.” —John Elvin, The Washington Times

“A book that reaches into this country’s heart of darkness … A tragically human story more telling than a thousand polls. The photographs by Mr. Williamson are eloquent.” —Herbert Mitgang, The New York Times

“The collaborative effort of photographer Walker Evans and writer James Agee, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, portrayed the lives of three sharecropper families in the South during the Depression, giving witness to the tyranny of the tenant farming system that enslaved some nine million tenants in 1936. Their book was at once poetic, scathing, compelling, and tragic. Fifty years later, Maharidge and Williamson have revisited, photographed, and interviewed the surviving members and descendants of the Gudger, Ricketts, and Woods families shown in that book … A fascinating work.” —Library Journal

“A stunning sequel to the James Agee/Walker Evans classic, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. It is at times astonishing, at all times deeply moving.” —Studs Terkel
