The civilization of the Old South was truly unique; nothing like it can be found before or since. The author, formerly Historian General of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, draws on her own childhood memories to paint a vivid word picture of antebellum plantation life, focusing on the amiable relations that once existed between White and Black and discussing the dramatic changes in Southern culture brought about by the War Between the States.
