From the Back Cover:

When is a zinnia not a zinnia? When the woman who plants it defies the canons of good taste.

Add family squabbles, religious conflict, small town snobberies. A dash of the exotic, witches in Salem, gangsters in the streets. Mix with the pacing of a novel, the read-aloud style of Our Town, and you have Cameron.

It grew in splendid isolation. Sure, it felt every economic downturn, and depended on outside technology to revive it. Yet, Cameron developed a main street, industry, an identity of its own.

Then came the economics of scale. Racial, ethnic, religious tensions escalated into conflicts. Conglomerates brought unemployment. One more statistic in the deindustrialization of America.

About the Author:

Dr. Averill majored in history at Michigan State University before doing graduate work in American studies and folklore at the University of Pennsylvania. Her dissertation, Can the Circle Be Unbroken, used country songs to study the rural white south.
