9780899198606: Womenfolks: Growing Up Down South

Womenfolks is one of those books that, although written about specific people in a specific place, captures the hearts of all who read it. A rich blend of personal memoir and meditation on family myth and tradition, it is both an illuminating examination of mothers and daughters and a vivid tribute to the gritty, independent women who were the South's true heroines.

Review:

“Wonderful and important.”

—Pat Conroy



“This reprint of Shirley Abbott’s classic of Southern cultural history is as insightful, informative, delightful, and relevant as the original was thirty-three years ago. It is a wonderful book that stands the test of time.”

—Margaret Bolsterli



“The South of the backwoods, hillbilly plain folk has at last found its true and inspired interpreter.”

—C. Vann Woodward



“An illuminating book, regardless of where we were born.”

Boston Globe
