From the Inside Flap:
Author Louise-Clarke Pyrnelle grew up on a cotton plantation in nineteenth-century Alabama, raised by not only her own family, but by the slaves her father owned. Through this novel, she seeks to preserve glimpses of a pre-abolition childhood. Mrs. Pyrnelle insisted that Diddie, Dumps and Tot is not an attempt to defend slavery. Rather, her novel presents a historical picture of master-slave relations and plantation life.
