In The Human Tradition in the New South, historian James C. Klotter brings together twelve biographical essays that explore the region's political, economic, and social development since the Civil War. Like all books in this series, these essays chronicle the lives of ordinary Americans whose lives and contributions help to highlight the great transformations that occurred in the South. Including profiles ranging from Winnie Davis to Dizzy Dean, from Asa Candler to Harlan Sanders, the book brings to life this dynamic and vibrant region. Visit our website for sample chapters!
