The trial excerpts are TOO much - I should have known.

A truly enlightening narrative of the times. Both engrossing and yet difficult to read at times to get a "birds eye" view of how women were demeaned and men disrepected. It was a good read. A bit slow when reading the actual trial transcripts due to the repetitive nature of trial transcripts; however, informative and interesting all the same as to the mind sets of the individuals involved. Anyone who wants more insight into the lives of "negroes" during this time, would find this book interesting.

This book was ok to read but it didn't hold my attention like I thought it would. I had a hard time finishing it. The author could have gone into a little more detail about the facts surrounding Ruby and her family after she was arrested. It glosses over important details.

I think the recent revelations about arch-segregationist Strom Thurmond's black daughter make this book very timely. In great detail, it explores how, long after slavery ended, black women were still considered mere property to be used at the whim of white men for sexual gratification. So it's more than just a "true crime" story...it reveals the whole sordid legacy of the "Southern Gentleman."

In the introduction you talk about the "way it was". Please know the difference between a cotton boll and THE Cotton Bowl !
