"An affectionate look at an almost unknown corner of American history."—Chicago Sun-Times
"An important look about black culture . . . The rice growers of Mars Bluffs have lived far off the beaten track, yet their history sheds light on blacks who live everywhere; so too, [Vernon's] courageous, unassuming labor of love, conducted outside the more studied seaboard districts, enhances the rich and complex record of African achievement in America."—New York Times Book Review
