    1. I was provided with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review.This is another book that got shuffled places while I was reading it. Once re-found (again), I set to starting from the beginning anew. Some of the poems and stories I couldn't really get into, but some of them sucked me in and left me wishing they were longer than a few pages. The photographs were beautiful and haunting. Overall, I'm glad I read it and saw glimpses of the past.

    2. I received this from the giveaways and grateful for winning! Stunning photos that coincide with the diverse writers; makes for a book you want in your collection! I literally read the book twice. Each poem and prose; gave more emotion/meaning and inspires one to look into their states archives. The writers did a phenomenal job and I hope they put another book together!

    3. I received this as a first read. I really liked most of this collection of mostly poems. I enjoyed the photographs include in this book. A beautiful book. A picture of the south in past times.
