"America is for all us," he said, "and all of America is for all of us."
A moving and sweeping story of a woman who grew up a slave, was freed, and lived through decades of change and tumult, right up to the civil rights era. Ernest Gaines writes in the first person and captures a uniquely American voice: fierce, tough, observant, and unwilling to fail. Made into a movie with Cicely Tyson. Also see Gaines's "Lesson Before Dying."
