Based on court transcripts, newspaper reports, archived papers, letters, FBI documents, and the recollections of family members on both sides, Mississippi native Alex Heard tells a moving and unforgettable story that evokes the bitter conflicts between black and white, North and South, in America. “… tragic, sad, and very compelling.” — John Grisham
