"Both an elegy to a way of life destroyed by war and a pointillist examination of life on the South Santee. Every reader of A World Turned Upside Down will discover the South's tragedy in the Palmer family's travails."—Alexander Moore, executive director, South Carolina Historical Society
"A rare and revealing glimpse into the everyday life of one of the South's elite planting families. Not just another 'rise and fall' story, it is a must read for anyone interested in Southern agriculture, education, or family life."—Walter Edgar, author of South Carolina in the Modern Age
