Chant of Ages; Cry of Cotton: The Biography of a South Georgia Jewish Community
Well, good people, Jewish Book Month is about to begin. So, I guess it's appropriate that I've just published on Kindle, Kobo, and Nook--for $6.99--my book on the 19th century beginnings of the contemporary Jewish community in Valdosta, Georgia. I've shortened the version of my description of the book to read: "It is a very intriguing complex human saga of very real people with real names having real hopes and dreams, as well as real insecurities and fears. We will relive and move with the flow of the human experience and become a participant in the lives of these people to the extent we can. We will share all of their emotions. We will work with them, play with them, and pray with them. We'll breathe life into and follow their courageous, though cautious, 'urge to merge' and their 'longing to belong.' We'll enter their hearts and minds and bodies in their struggle to transform from Old World battered pariahs into respected New World citizens, from persons who once had been forced to live apart from society into persons who were accepted and became contributing parts of Valdostan society, who came to be revered as members of Valdosta's post-Civil War 'upbuilders' and it's socially prominent 'new moss.'"
Just went on iBook.
