Excerpt from The Leopard's Spots: A Romance of the White Man's Burden 1865-1900

IN answer to hundreds of letters, I wish to say that all the incidents used in Book I., which is properly the prologue of my story, were selected from authentic records, or came Within my personal knowledge.

The only serious liberty I have taken with history is to tone down the facts to make them credible in fiction. The village Of Hambright is my birthplace and is located near the center of Military District no. 2, comprising the Carolinas, which were destroyed as States by an Act Of Con gress in 1867. It will be a century yet before people out side the South can be made to believe a literal statement Of the history Of those times.

From the Back Cover:

"Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots?"

Set in post-Civil War North Carolina, The Leopard's Spots tells of the pain of surrender and the effort to rebuild and repair the war-torn and downtrodden South. It exposes the reality of social and race relations during Reconstruction.
The story's leading characters are an eclectic mix of people representative of the time. Among others, they include Charles Gaston, a young man who dreams of a governor's mansion; Sallie Worth, a sweet-voiced daughter of the old-fashioned South who embodies human idealism; Simon Legree, an ex-slave driver and Reconstruction leader; and Maj. Stuart Dameron, chief of the Ku Klux Klan.

About the Author:

Thomas Dixon (1864-1946) was born in Shelby, North Carolina. He is the author of The Clansman and The Sins of the Father.
