The remarkable Civil War letters of a Georgia plantation family, now available in a compact, illustrated volume for new readers and for all those who so greatly admired the original monumental edition. The letters vividly recreate a period of American history unparalleled for its drama and poignancy. From reviews of the first edition: "No story in America's history has been so often told, or has so well stood the retelling, as that of the Old South and its destruction. But Robert Manson Myers's splendid [book] tells it as it has not been told before, in the fullness of its poignancy and tragedy." -Madison Jones, New York Times Book Review "A great and indispensable book." -Jonathan Yardley, New Republic "A Gone with the Wind saga.... This book is superb." -Clarence E. Olson, St. Louis Post Dispatch "The Children of Pride is family reconstruction on a grand scale. It demonstrates how the editing of sources can become, in the hands of an imaginative scholar, the work of creative history." -Citation for the 1973 National Book Award in History. The original version of The Children of Pride was the winner of the 1973 National Book Award in History. It was also named among the best books of 1972 by the American Library Association and by the New York Times Book Review, Saturday Review, Time, Washington Post, and Newsweek.
