Pressestimmen

"Erskine Clarke's narrative of more than three generations of interlocking
and enslaving familes in Liberty County, Georgia, is epic in its scope and
mastery. With extensively detailed research and evocatively restrained
writing, "A Dwelling Place" is one of the best books ever on what it meant
in day-to-day terms to be slaves and slave masters in the antebellum
South."--Mark Noll, Wheaton College, author of "America's God, from
Jonathan Edwards to Abraham Lincoln"
