A black boy’s death spotlights the Civil Rights-era South. The author’s limpid prose
lyrically evokes the Shenandoah Valley landscape and the small-town life it nurtures
without sugarcoating the racial injustices that permeate it. He paints a nuanced portrait of
Southern culture as it begins, slowly and painfully, to shake off the fetters of hate.
