From Our Editors

From Gone with the Wind to Designing Women, images in film and fiction tend to obscure the diversity of American women below the Mason-Dixon line. In a work that lays bare many myths and stereotypes, this author offers the first professional synthesis of southern women's experiences across the centuries. In telling their story, she considers many ordinary lives--those of Native-American, African-American, and white women from the Tidewater and Appalachia to the Gulf Coastal Plain and Mississippi Delta, women whose varied economic and social circumstances resist simple explanations.
