Elizabeth Spencer offers an essential, relocating tale set within the deep South--the Delta and Mississippi hill nation. Amos Dudley was once a farm boy within the Delta kingdom on the flip of the century till he set to work for his brother Ephraim within the shop through the railroad. It was once a standard sufficient atmosphere during which to start to believe the unusual forces that circulate a guy to set his path within the world.
But the forces operating inside of Amos have been on no account usual. occasionally merciless, occasionally without warning smooth, they have been robust and willful, in order that Amos turned a guy to reckon with--to Ary, his appealing, plantation-born spouse, to the girl within the bayou, to the shiftless thinker, Arney. Even the wealthy black swamp soil which he wrested from the woodland and gave to his cotton looked as if it would reply with awe and eagerness to Amos's will. His sensuous, wayward daughter and the guy she enjoyed particularly felt the total shattering drama of the violence which had obviously been building--building within the destiny of a guy who, regardless, takes his personal crooked way.
